I messed up the ignition lock I had someone looked at it and he said I needed a new ignition lock he install a new one and my engine wont start, the car turns on is just the engine wont start I ask him what happen and he said is probably a mechanical problem. The car had no problems starting before. Is it really a mechanical problem or the igniton lock. By the way the ignition lock is a new one but a chevy lock he said it didnt matter because he was gonna program it to the house of the one thats there.
Do you

Mmm dont know about that, sounds a little shady, I would first have someone verify if there is fuel and spark. I will send you the info to show you how. If this has an alarm /immobilizer then that new lock may be a problem, and you say your gettin absolutely no sound when trying to start?
