Default 2004 Ram wont start after oil change?

My brother just called me and he just changed his oil and filter and now his RAM will not start. He has changed his oil many , many times before never a problem. Actually this RAM has never had a problem

Gas is 1/4 tank, turns over well, etc. just will not start.

Update: He just got it started. How?---He floored it and held it there until it started, blew black smoke, etc. But now running... Strange--------

Some type of hiccup? I am about to change the oil in my 04 I just bought and never changed the oil in a dodge, is there something I should know?

Probably was flooded out. As a rule, with a fuel injected engine, you don't touch the gas pedal to start it, but that can flood out. If they do flood out, you hold the gas pedal t the floor and this will let in more air and allow it to start. All the black smoke was the unburned fuel coming out of the engine. As a rule, this usually only happens in colder weather.
