    If the car ran ok before all of the work then you really have to check the spark plug gaps, wire connections,

    here is a link to test your coil pack

I'd say he cracked one of the spark plugs when he installed them.

My car idles roughly and jerks. The rpms fluctuate and the lights flicker when it jerks and shakes. I just had someone change the spark plugs, could they not have done it right?

Yes, first it shouldnt take an hour to do spark plugs, also there may be an HT lead loose, but most likely incorrect plugs, wrong gap or worse, a cracked plug if they did them up too tight. I would remove them and check everything asap as it will be putting stress on your coil/coils.

Have a gmc vandrura 1994 had a oil change and tune done to it yet it started vibration on idle and on gear and has a rough idle and when I start it up its load and a smal vibration comes and goes idk what...

If it wasn't acting up before the tune-up, one of the spark plugs may have something across the gap, or the gap is incorrect.
Also if more than one spark plug wire was removed at a time it is likely that 2 spark plug wires got crossed, (connected to the wrong spark plug).

Car wont start

Did you change the spark plugs one wire at a time or did you pull all the wires off an then changed the plugs? If you put the spark plug wires back on wrong this will cause some of the problems you are facing. Get a $20 manual from you parts store and it will give you the diagram and steps to put the wires on correctly. good luck and get some help from a neighbor who understands car repair.

Service engine light on 2002 mitsubishi galant

it could be the spark plugs, at least that is what it was for mine, if you have over 50k miles without a spark plug change i highly suggest one, also a oil /transmission change would be great for your car too if you haven't done those reciently. I would also suggest using a higher grade gas, sometimes this fixes the trick too.
If you try all those and still experiencing hard transitions please let me know and i'll try a more indepth analysis on your car.
Thanks jyotsna.
