    You need to lift the bonnet and check that there are no cables, connections or vacuum pipes adrift. Sounds like something has come off or broken.

    Hope this helps

Sounds like your battery died on you. Have it checked at an auto parts store for free, also if jump starting the car works but it dies after removing the jumper cables the alternator is bad. Check the battery first as it only takes one bad cell to kill it. Most batteries are only good for a few years, longer if you're lucky. A battery can die on you with no warning sometimes.

Coils and wires are the most likely culprits as they never get replaced hardly ever. You cant really test a coil, you can check for resistance on the plug wires but that doesnt tell you if the insulation is bad on them.
