I was driving down the highway and it started squealing and the gas pedal came up. It wouldn’t accelerate and it won’t turn over or anything. I tried starter fluid in the air intake to see if it was the fuel pump but that didn’t do anything at all. I also took the radiator cap off and tried starting it and it seemed like it was trying harder to start, but still didn’t.
Do you

Hello,

It sounds like the engine timing belt let go. Can you please shoot a quick video with your phone so we can see what's going on? that would be great. You can upload it here with your response. Here is the timing belt replacement instructions and diagrams along with the camshaft timing marks. This guide can help as well:
