Put a socket and ratchet on the crankshaft pulley bolt, and attempt to manually turn the engine. It should turn without a great deal of effort. If it is impossible to turn (locked up), the engine is probably seized, or hydro-locked (water, coolant, or oil has entered the combustion chamber, and as you know, liquids can't be compressed).
could be alot of things- tune up- cam sensor- crank sensor- idle air controle motor etc etc did it set a code and turn the check engine light on? if it did have the code scanned and see what it is and go from there
the black smoke indicates the engine is flooding first check your plugs and take note of the one or ones that are darker than the others ( a tannish brown color is good) if you find you need to change your plugs also change your distributor cap rotor button and plug wires. Keep in mind especially with the wires you get what you pay for. good luck
