there wasn't any noise
Dodge Mechanic: Chad Farhat, ASE Certified Technician A6 - Electrical / Electronic systems A7 Heating / Air conditioning systems replied 1 year ago

you could have locked up the engine .we need to check

or take starter out and try turning from flywheel with screw driver ,can you turn or no ?

try turning the belt by hand or crank shaft pulley if u have any tools ,can you turn it or it locked up ?

that will be your next step

does the starter clicks when try to star it ,does the lights dim down on dash when u try to start have u noticed ?

I Know not what you want to hear but that sound like engine locked up if you are 100% sure it want turn .

Take the oil out drain it and look for small metal shavings in it ,they sell a funnel that has like a screen in it where u can run the oil in it ,if metal found than yiu have internal damage
