    Your timing belt is really broken -- is that correct? Or is this just a hypothetical, as they say?

    If you don't hear a bunch of ugly noises from the engine when you're cranking it, I would say there has been no damage done.

hi have you checked the timing belt? this might have broken, the other thing these are renouned for is if you get water into the air filter this will sieze the engine also, so if you have driven through a big puddle recently this might be the cause, other than that something might have broke inside the engine, and to be honest the list would be never ending, could be....piston broken, piston rings broken, crank bearing siezed, big end broken, valve snaped, and it goes on...

Im not getting spark to my spark plugs

Remove the distributor cap, so that the rotor is visible. Have an assistant turn the ignition to crank the engine over. If the rotor does not turn when the engine is cranking, then you need a timing belt or chain.

If the rotor does turn, then replace the coil.

No start

Turn the engine by hand to Top dead center on the # 1 cylinder,Pull the distributor cap and see where the rotor is pointing.It should be lined up with the # 1 plug wire on the cap,If it's not,turn the distributor until it is.If you can't turn it far enough,you will need to pull the distributor out and turn one tooth on the distributor gear and reinsert it.

If this it is way off,let me know and I will tell you what to do.

Car would not start or the engine wouldn?t even turn over.

Try removing spark plugs and turning engine over by hand with socket wrench on harmonic dampner if it spins freely probably not engine problem fluid in cylinders will cause hydro lock indicating blown head gasket or injector stuck wide open. a broken timing belt would still allow engine to turn over as your car should not have an interference engine. If engine will not turn by hand with spark plugs out susspect internal engine damage siezed bearings broken rod and so.
