Did you check the oil level and coolant level?

Did you actually look at the oil level now or are you assuming it's good because it was changed?

You need to check that and try to turn the engine manually using a socket ad bar on the crankshaft bolt because it sure sounds like the motor seized up.

I did turn the engine from the bottom on the side where pulleys are the bigger one and it turned fine with a wrench...oil is good too checked...

Your test results just don't add up.

You haven't determined what the burnt smell was. Something was either seizing up or burning up. You probably need a professional to inspect it to get you pointed in the right direction here.
