Engine seems frozen and won't crank.

If the engine is seized, it certainly will not crank. This can be checked by attaching a breaker bar to the crank pulley bolt and trying to turn the engine over by hand. A qualified technician from YourMechanic can perform this diagnosis for you to ensure your engine really is seized.
