Call the shop where you had the work done. Sounds like they messed up something! If so, they're on the hook for the tow bill too!! HTH. -Jim

Need more info Did it start prior to work done? If so probably have installed plug wires wrong. Check firing order.

Did they remove the distributor cap when they did the repair? If so check to see if the distributor rotor was reinstalled.

My above comment only applies if the engine in this car is the 3.8 V6. The 4.6 V8 has distributorless ignition.
