Could be a blocked fuel filter, or your fuel pump may have died. It takes 3 things for an engine to run: Air Fuel Spark You need to figure out which the engine is not getting. Most cars can get air so I would look at fuel and spark. If you can get a can of throttle body cleaner and spray it into the throttle body and try to start the car. If it starts and runs for a bit, then the problem is the engine is not getting fuel. There are ways to check for spark but for now try to see if the engine is getting fuel. out of time timing belt
