My car shut off on me today and now when I go to start it it cranks but won't turn over
So it's cranking over but won't start?
If so possibly broke timing belt. If yours is a dohc engine then you have bigger problems cause that's an interference engine and you probably bent some valves. But if it is the sohc engine just replace timing belt and you good to go.
Possible a bad fuel pump & or a bad alternator ...
