First, check the oil level. If it's good on oil or say the starter is dead. If you need help replacing it let me know.

just changed oil 2 days before but it did show a quart low. And she drove 1/2 mile before it started squealing so she pulled over and shut it off then wouldn't turn over.Put a wrench on crank bolt wouldn't turn.

Experts ask questions since they can't investigate in person. If you are not willing to answer questions and be the eyes and ears of the people trying to help you then you can't expect to get help.
