I am not too sure, but I can remember hearing about some of these cars which required an unreasonable amount of labor time to R & R this alternator, seems to me it is an the rear side of engine and is a real bear to get at. Like I said I could be wrong, but you might call a shop or two and get an estimate, and know for sure.

How can i tell if my 1998 chevy lumina car motor is locked up?

Does it have oil in it? If it does, its more than likely its not, take the serpentine belt off or which ever one that's around the alternator.An alternator that has a bad bearing can seize up and keep the motor from turning over.

The car starts runs but will lose power while driving

You might need to replace the alternator. The alternator charges the battery. You can get both the battery and the alternator tested at an auto parts store to see if either are bad. Try that.

I can't find the Alternator Fusible Link...

Your problem is the ignition switch under the dash on top of the steering collum. Autozone has them for about $15. If you need help replacing let me know.
