Assuming you added oil, there are a multitude if things that will prevent a car from starting, far too many to list here. Yeah, I know, no help. But simply asking what is the problem is not enough information. Start with the basics, stick a screwdriver in a spark plug wire, ground it on the plug, see if you have spark. Blue. Yellow is weak. To boil it down, spark, fuel, timing.

Oil was added, it turns over, there is spark but it won't start. It shut off while it was running. He added 3 litres of oil.
