91 ford escort wagon that wont start

i have a 91 ford escort wagon that wont start the night it died, every time i put on the break it would die i had to pop the clutch to get it started again.then after about 30-45 min it started to smoke,and died now wont start at all! you turn the key and it kinda hums wont turn over. the fuel cut off light was coming on when it died before so i thought it was my fuel filter changed that still wont start, it is almost like its getting no spark i replaced all the spark plugs, still wont start. batery is new. it is fuel injected, any sugestions on what i should try next??

"...kinda hums wont turn over..."
make sure you can turn the engine by hand before you waste any more time. Write back with results.

you saw nothing unsusual when you took out the plugs?

If the engine won't turn the fuel filter and plugs won't help you.

What is a fuel cut off light? It wasn't the oil light?

hmm yeah you better make sure the engine will even turn over by hand now

the first problem sounds like either a bad starter or the engine is stuck, could have broken timing belt and the engine could be jammed because of that, or it could be worse, or just be a bad starter motor

and the smoke, hmmm

doesnt sound very good at all

how does the oil level look ? is it full still?
