Did the CEL come on? It could be a number of things. Best to check for codes before you start buying parts you might not need.

The coilpack rarely dies on these cars. When cranking, does the amber "upshift" arrow on the instrument panel stay lit? If so, you have either a bad crank sensor (CPS) or a broken balancer (or both).

Check to see if there is a bolt head still in the center of your balancer. Has it restarted since you had it towed?
