Timing belt issue. That is if you say you can turn the harmonic balancer with wrench and the cams on the top are not turning.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=pgg0bBavpK8 -- check this out (other video was a 2.0. This is the 1.6) so I know we are talking about the same thing. The only thing that ties the harmonic balancer to the cams is the timing belt. So if you can turn the harmonic balancer and the cams don't move then you have some sort of timing belt issue. It's either loose, broke, timing belt tensioner or idler pulley issue.
