Based on low price I'll guess timing belt has jumped or broke. I'd start by seeing if vehicle will run on starting fluid if not check compression. Compression should be around 170 psi, if drastically low then check timing marks. Let me know how it goes or if you run into questions, you can reply to this answer at any time without additional fees. Thanks.
