Sounds like you are describing two different problems?... First, can you put a wrench on the crank bolt and turn the engine (2 complete turns...with trans out of gear of course)? ...if not this indicates an internal failure in the engine... if so check to see if the distributor has moved... that would explain the sluggishness and the backfire...The lost fasteners you mention should not affect driveability... When you say it will not turn over I am assuming you mean the starter won't engage... if you can hear the starter engaging (clicking), but the motor still won't turn (with a good charge on the battery and good wire connections), that is again a sign of serious engine damage... If no sounds come from the starter (and you have checked wiring and have good voltage) pull out the starter and test on the ground with jumper cables... Hope this helps... post more details if none of these steps get you going again...;-)

You must perform an engine control module fault code test as well as test the fuel pressure, if no codes are present and fuel pressure is ok check for a defective camshaft drive belt.

Sounds like your battery is very low on charge, or you have a bad connection between the battery and starter or ground. Check that the battery cables are clean and tight on the battery, and that they are securely connected at the starter (positive) and frame/engine (negative). If everything looks good there, charge your battery, then bring your car to AutoZone/Advance Auto/O'Reilly's, etc and have them check your battery and alternator.

Santa fe 2007 wont start makes a single click noise

May be ab bad starter solenoid, or corroded/loose connection at starter, or (ground). Could also be a bad ignition switch. Start from the load; the starter. Test for 12V at starter, OK. Connect short wire from starter and touch sylenoid connection..

2003 Trailblazer- no power after key stuck in ignition

Sounds like an antitheft problem I would start with the antitheft system. Usually when you only have one key all keys have to be programmed together even the original. When you have more than one it is easy to program additional keys.

My beetle just engine just went off while driving

Make sure the battery terminals are secure. Other than that I would guess there is an electrcal fault on the vehicle. I am not familiar with the beetle but think if I were driving your vehicle I would make sure all electrical connections were as they should be.
