Question about 1995 Oldsmobile Eighty Eight

My engine siezed, it was running fine and stopped. Now the engine

Seems locked. I checked the oil and it was clear (no water) there was no running rough or smoking was running smoothly and I had no warning when it died and would start. The mechanic put it on a lift and among other things put a wrench on the crank but it wont budge. He says the engine is blown ...I am not so sure but io can't figure out what happened. Any suggestions

What does it mean when is states oil pressure low, stop engin

It means your oil pressure is too low to properly lubricate the engine. You either have a bad oil pump, plugged oil filter, or you are too low on oil. Check the oil level first. If you keep running the engine with this light on, the engine may sieze up and be destroyed.

Engine was idling then just stopped appears to have siezed what would cause this

Lack of antifreeze and water (coolant) flowing into the engine. Water pump failure or not enough coolant in the system. Lack of motor oil flowing in the engine. Very low amount of motor oil in your car or oil pump failure.

I try to move the flywheel to left end right. End don't move for pontiac fierro 1984 what is the problems

Sounds like the engine is siezed or is suffering from a liquid lock. Liquid lock occurs when one or more of the cylinders becomes filled with fluid. Air / fuel mixture can compress but liquid can not. Check the oil and coolant. If there is any water in the oil or oil in the water, then you most likely have a head problem. Could be simple as bad head gasket or could be cracked head. The only way to truly find out is disassemble the engine.

Oil press stop car

Change the oil pressure switch but what is the engine mileage,condition and servicing.Is it a siezing oil pump leading to a siezed engine.Start the car and remove the oil cap, a mist or spray of oil may come out indicating the pump is okay so to speak and on steady idle may blow more out.If thats the case then it may be the switch only but given the age and possibly a high miler it may be the oil pump and bearing in mind these cars had oil trouble from new because of wrong oil grade being used in the factory and the specification being changed from standard oil to part or fully synthetic to prevent standard oil turning too a greasy paste like substance that led to siezed new engines after a year or 2.

Toyota lucida that was running fine then suddenly stopped,lights came up on dash then the engine died,tried to restart but the starter motor just clicked.i have changed the starter but it still clicks and...

If you have a known good starter on it and all the wiring to starter and relay is good, you may have a locked up (siezed) engine from lack of oil pressure or runnung hot. I would try turning engine by hand (put a socket and ratchet on the balancer bolt) and try turning it, if it doesn't turn then it is locked up.

Sputtering then stopped running and wont turn over.

Wont turn over are you sure as wont start is differant than wont run
Wont start could be Battery/starter/or engine siezed.
Wont run is not the same,,, that could be lacking power /low on oil/water/ Fuel/or even engine lacking power like down on compression which is all the above plus more ....

Keep the car and repair the water pump! If it is running fine now it will continue to do so for years to come....Subaru's are like that--they almost heal themselves.....
