Why would your car die and not start after someone helped you put transmission fluid in it?

There are dozens of reasons cars won't start. He could have knocked a wire loose. Look under the hood around where he was. Otherwise take it to the garage.

Your manual transmission does not have to have fluid in it in order to start the engine. Theoretically you can start the engine with the transmission out of the vehicle totally. That being said.... Its not a good idea to start the engine if there is no fluid in the transmission just in case someone tries to move the vehicle by putting it in gear. You do not want to drive the vehicle with no fluid in the trans.

Start by checking the transmission fluid level. If this is good then replace the transmission fluid and filter. If it continues it needs transmission work.
