car stalled at a traffic light. Gave no warning and was running fine to that point. Tried to start car and it will not crank at all. Just a clicking noise. all electrical components (starter battery,alternater etc...)ck out ok. Mechanic said he tried to manually crank the engine and it would not move. What would/could cause this. I heard no unusual noises nor were there any smells or smoke associated with a catastrophic engin failure.Car was sitting still when this happened.

Nothing we can add that will help much since a mechanic has your car and can check it out hands on. All we can do is guess at the many possibilities why this happened and that doesn't really do any good. Post the mechanic's findings then we may be able to be more helpful. I hope it's not too bad, so good luck with it!
