Engine Performance problem
2003 Dodge Stratus 4 cyl Automatic 112000 miles

Died pulling up to a stop sign. Thought initially it was the coil pack. Changed it that day. No go. Also changed plugs and wires for good measure. Next thought was timing belt blew. Initial assessment proved positive. After removing initial covers, belt was tight, and in good condition. Upon further testing and inspection, crank shaft doesn't move, and cam shafts appear stuck. Is this now a professional job, or am I missing something? It appears purely mechanical, not electronical. Any help would be appreciated. Oh, and I couldn't test compression as the valves can't move. Thanks!
