Did you get any error on the dash before it died?

And when you try to start, does it crank (aka: does the startmotor turn over), or doesn’t it do anything at all?

possibly your HPFP (High Pressure Fuel Pump), they were upgraded either in late 2008 but for sure in 2009 and up. There might have been a recall in regards to this issue. More info from you is also needed as requested in post #2

Ok I had someone look at it and said it COULD be my timing belt. Having a mechanic look at it tomarrow to give me the reason for the problem. And when I try to start it it won't turn over...it sounds like it wants to but won't. I can only imagine how much it will cost me if it is the timing belt...

If it’s the timing belt, then worst case you’ll need an engine rebuild
