I suspect you broke the timing belt. What engine do you have?

Can see the timing belt would it be a sensor

it is a 2.8 i believe

Check to see if the spark plugs and wires are OK. The grinding noise has me concerned though.

I thought about your problem and I wonder if you had the same thing happen to your car that happened to my 03 Forester last year. The timing belt idler wheel lost its bearings and the engine slipped time and would not run. The belt looked OK but the valve timing was off.
