the car needed a jump so bought a new

tested and it started missing real bad so I
brought it home and replaced spark plugs
and oil sending unit because oil was
dripping on spark plugs and checked out
coil pack housing for cracks  and put it
back on and now it won't start at all and

Check all your connections again, if battery terminals and connections are good try a voltage drop test to the starter. Can also check main fuse and starter relay.
