I was in red lining*

You probably grenaded your engine. Did it just die quietly, or did it sound like something came loose inside before dying?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It died quietly,I didn't heard any sound. It felt like the engine just gave up and lost power.
Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 1 year ago.
when you turn the key to crank it, does it turn over at all?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It does turn over. But it just won't start.
Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 1 year ago.
Ok. When you are cranking the engine, does it sound like normal cranking, or does it sound like the engine is spinning a little more "freely" or "easily" than normal?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It's normal cracking. P.s just had the timing belt,water pump,valve cover gasket etc.. replaced.
Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 1 year ago.
Did you replace the timing belt before or after this incident?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
2 weeks before.
Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 1 year ago.
OK. Have you removed the timing covers yet to confirm that the belt didn't skip a couple teeth while you were free revving the engine? I would absolutely start there.
Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 1 year ago.
Do you have a compression tester?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The belt looks fine, not i don't have an compression tester.
Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 1 year ago.
You already lined up the marks and verified that it's good or you are assuming that it is ok because it's new?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Verified it yesterday with a friend. If it not timing belt problem then test compression?
Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 1 year ago.
I would check compression, yes
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Will do,thanks.
Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 1 year ago.
No problem. Please let me know what you come up with.

Surely.
