OkThe first thing to check is to see if the timing belt broke. The quickest method is to remove the oil fill cap and see if the cams are turning as you crank the engine. If not, then don't crank it anymore as it can cause damage to the engine. If the engine isn't cranking at all, then it's likely a charging system issue, but when you have a crank no start with this many miles, it's the first place to look.Please check this and let me know.Thank you.
