Died and wont start! please help

So I was driving fine, i've had the car for about 8 months and its perfect with 188,000 miles. I went to accelerate and the engine died. This hasnt happened before. The fluids are all good, fuel pump good. Not sure what is wrong. Now when i go to start it, it turns but it wont turn all the way over. Any ideas? help

Battery? Alternator? you say you have fuel what about spark. Try to turn the engine over by hand. mabe a timing chain sucked a valve do you have any compression? It could be anything check it out and and post any new findings.

Yeah dude, you need to dig into that one. There are so many variables and its going to be a long trouble shooting if you do it on your own. You can start simple and basic, check the fuel filter, plugs,wires, coil pack or packs and go from there
