If the motor just stopped out of nowhere, this may suggest many different possibilities such as a loss of spark or a fuel delivery problem. If the motor does not crank, this may suggest an issue related to the starter such as a starter solenoid. However, to avoid any unnecessary repairs, I would still recommend having an expert from YourMechanic come to your location to diagnose your no start issue firsthand and help you fix it accordingly.
