Sounds like your Timing Chain or Belt Are Damaged and Caused your Ignition Timing to Jump out of Time, Also check your Distributor Cap and rotor NOTE: if you have a Distributor ,Some are Distributorless. Pull your Spark Plugs out BEFORE you Do Locate #1 Plug its in Front of your Engine.And Trace the Wire to the Distributor Cap. If you have a 4 Cylinder #1 is in the First Plug in front of vehicle, if its a V-6 #1 Plug is on Left side first plug in Front. Depending on which engine you have will determine if your wires go into the Distributor cap Clockwise or Counter Clockwise. So BEST to Simply Mark them to get them back in same order.You'll need to Get the Enging to crank over and have a Buddy Put a Compression Gauge in #1 Cylinder and Bring it up to TDC (Top Dead Center) thats when the piston is up and gets the Gauge to Move up then your on the Compression Stroke, Then check distributor rotor to see if its pointed to where your #1 Spark Plug wire came off or at least close to it.Just hit the Ignition Switch off and on Until you have it showing compression on Gauge. JUST ON and OFF that Fast. If the Rotor is pointing To a different Spark Plug Wire in the Cap, Sounds like timing Jumped. Hope this will help you solve your problem or at least find it. If you don't have or not sure on How to do this i recommend you have a Qualified Mechanic Shop run the Tests. Thanks and Good Luck

Could be the starter or possibly the ignition. Best way to test the starter is get out a multimeter and check the voltage to the main wire on the starter make sure it's getting 12 volts, then when you try and start see if the solenoid is getting voltage, the solenoid will ONLY get voltage when you are trying to start it. Try that and go from there.
thank you,
