Is the engine spinning really fast ? if so then it could be a broken timing belt. If that's good the I would see what fuel pressure you have !


It seems unlikely that that timing belt would break at the exact same time she turned the engine off, but I guess anything is possible. Obviously it can't break while the engine is off. I would check for fuel. If you remove the small cap on the schrader valve on the fuel rail and press the pin with a screwdriver (cover it with a rag and use eye protection, you don't want gas all over) gas should come out. Let us know what happens.

also check your fuses under the hood and inside cab.
