Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
Does the starter make a single click or a bunch of rapid clicking when you try to start it?
It sounds like it may have either broken the timing chain or jumped time. However, I have seen times where one of the pulleys seizes up and stops the engine from cranking. I actually had this happen one time with a power steering pump.
So, I would take the drive belts off the engine and see if it will crank then, or if you can turn the engine by hand using a socket on the crank pulley bolt. If it will crank without the drive belt on, then check all the pulleys to see if you can tell which one is seized up.
