Question about Cars & Trucks
That's alot more than just sticky valves! You probably need to pull the head(s) to get a better look-see. You may have all kinds of problems like a warped head, burned valves, worn out seals, in the head and the engine may need rings replaced...

It is really hard to say without actually checking the car, but it sounds like you may be having charging system problems. Possibly a bad alternator, loose battery cable or the like. Low voltage at the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) will cause the PCM to go into "reduced power mode" - also known as "limp-in mode". This will limit your accelerator and shut off some of your electrical accessories while you are driving. If the battery voltage is low, this is what is keeping your car from re-starting. Engine overheating can also cause similar symptoms.
I guess the question is - did you have any warning lamps on when this happened? Was the "Check Engine" light on? Was the "battery" light coming on?
The best advise I can give you at this point is to get the car's computer network scanned for fault codes. Any fault codes stored will help to determine what is going on. The only other instruction I can give you is don't keep trying to start it. If the battery voltage is low, continuing to try starting it can cause the battery voltage to drop low enough to clear the memory in your PCM. This would not be good when it comes to trying to figure out wnat happened.

If the starter is clicking over and not firing, it could be a clogged fuel pump or the fuel pump has gone out. Need more details.
