No oil in the crankcase?
Dropped a valve?
Spun a bearing?
We're probably gonna need more to go on.

Does the starter crank it? Remove the sparkplugs & measure your compression.

You didn't by any chance just have an oil change done before that did you?

Definentely more info needed here. Have you put more oil in it to see if it turnes over or spills out. What did it do before it quit? Remove the oil fill cap. and smell in there. Does it smell like burned oil. bad smell. Is coolant level ok? Can you put a 19 mm socket on crank pully with an extension and half inch drive ratchet . Its on drivers side inside wheel well. you will see a hole with triangular tabs trying to prevent debris from falling in there. just push the 19mm socket with a 6 to 8 inch extention and a half inch ractchet and see if motor will spin. doesnt take a lot of force to do this. If it moves in either direction, turn it a revolution or two and listen for abnormal clanging. If Ok try putting some oil in it ( 4 Quarts ) and watch while doing it to see if its spilling on ground. stop if it is. Its terminal possibly. If not give it a try to start it. If it starts let it warm up while listening for abnormal noise. keep an eye on coolant level and dont let oil get low again. chances are its not going to be good.

First check the oil on the dipstick, before adding more.
