Hi. It is likely one of three things could have happened. Either the fuel pump quit, the crankshaft position sensor went bad, or the timing belt broke. Do any rpms register on the tachometer when you are cranking the engine over?

That is good, but Do any rpms register on the tachometer when you are cranking the engine over?

I don't even know what that mean what are rpms
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 12 months ago.

Do you have a gauge on the dash that shows the RPMS of the engine? Usually next to the speedometer.
