My engine stopped while car was on motion. I pulled over an tried igniting the car but the engine won't start. What might be the cause? This is the first time I am experiencing this

Could be a number od different reasons. If the engine is cranking over(starter motor turns engine when you turn key) first thing that comes to my mind due to the age is a failed timing belt. You may even notice that the engine appears to sound different when trying to start (engine spins faster due to lack of compression) Best call for a tow and have it taken to a reliable shop/technician.
Thank you so much.it was actually the time belt. What other parts can this affect?

Reccommend water pump be replaced and all belts at same time. Oil seals should be inspected very closely along with belt tensoiners.
