I know enough from your post right now to know you have a Ford Escort which quit running andf has a check engine light on. Either need more info or you need delegate this job to someone who knows what to look for on these cars.

ok i'll shoot in the dark, is it a 1.9L? check basics spark fuel compression? but this you can do yourself, take off the oil fill cap and have a friend try to start the car, get a flashlight and look in the hole where you fill your oil, can you see the rockers moving inside there, is anything inside that hole moving, if not the you probably broke the belt or more commonly on those motors the teeth strip out, so the crankshaft will not turn the camshaft respectively, if stuff is moving, go back to step 1.
