I was driven my 200w ford escort se and it just
dies and won't start the started kicked in and it
won't turn over could it be the fly wheel because it
made a noise before it died

That would be the thing to do, is drop the starter, have it checked out, and inspect the ring gear on the flywheel. Flywheel should be checked for cracks also while looking at it.
