Question about 2000 Buick LeSabre
It seems as if the engine has seized. Can replacing the oil pump "help" in way. Will oil be pumped until the frozen parts get lubricated and move as advertised??

Visit the autozone.com website and register the car information. It doesn't cost anything and you will have access to an online repair manual for the car. The steps for replacing the water pump should be available there. It's a handy resource. Hope this helped and best wishes.
