The same thing happened to me and it was a broke timing belt. I drove the car, cut it off and when I went back to restart, it wouldn't. The timing belt broke after I turned the car off and by me trying to crank it, the valves got bent. I had have the heads worked on and a new belt put on. I also went ahead and had the water pump replace in which you need to do also if it is the timing belt.
