It sounds like the timing belt snapped. Don't continue to try to start it as this may damage your valves. Replace timing belt every 60K. I've replaced mine twice.

My 97 mercury villager started slowing down and then it cut off. Put oil and transmisson fluid in it and it wouldn't stay crunk for long. Now it doesn't crank at all. ???

See if this sounds familiar: Just driving down the road and all of the sudden it just started losing power and you step on the gas and nothing happened? It dies, had to pull to the side of the road, it cranks over but won't start?
Answer 1) This is indicative of a failed/broken timing belt! If you continually try starting after this condition occurs then you could potentially ruin an engine! If it won't crank at all, chances are that the battery is completely drained from trying to crank it,
Answer 2) If the battery is still charged then the broken timing belt may have wrapped itself around your crank gear and now has the belt "wedged" between the crank gear and the housing not allowing it to spin.
Answer 3) Most costly and unfortunate, you could've ruined the engine by cranking it over without a timing belt. If you heard "banging, knocking, pinging" sounds while turning the engine over after this happened then the engine is ruined and will need replaced as the repair would be more costly than the vehicle is worth. If you didn't hear any of these sounds then likely your answer will be # 2!

Wont start... My 93 accord died several times the last time it died and hasent started since. The tach and speedo were jumping erdadically while going down road. Now every thing will work except for power...

sounds like the igntion switch has failed, not the key cylinder but the actual electrical switch, a common problem on these earlier honda's, the bit about when the windows work is the dead give away

Driving and car died and now wont start it has power and turns over just wont start

You need to isolate the problem. If it starts when you spray carb cleaner into the throttle body while cranking then problem is in fuel system.(pump, pump relay, filter or fuse) If not, then look into ignition system. Use any manual to get specific testing instructions and do not buy anything till you verify by testing that you really need that part or it can get unnecessarily expensive.
If you need more info on anything, just ask, but at the point you are at, careful testing will tell you far more than anyone here can tell you.

My alternator belt broke i fixd it now my car wont start it cranks but sounds funny

I am not sure where the crank position sensor is on your car but when the alternator belt broke on my Buick it trashed the crank sensor that is located next to the crank shaft pulley. The computer needs the crank senor to know the position of the crank shaft. If the sensor is bad the car will not start.
