@cassiem , which engine size,is it a diesel or gas, auto or standard trans. You may have to have it scanned to help in diagnosing issue, unfortunately it is not running as some parts suppliers like Nappa, pepboys, autozone offer this service for free, may have to have towed in. If it seems to be turning over differently then what was normal(quicker) timing belt may have broke, although there are other causes faulty fuel pump/relay/fuse, bad crank sensor, etc.. Like I say have it scanned and if not comfortable trouble shooting have a good technician have a look, diagnose and estimate repair. Good luck.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.
