REPLACEMENT OIL PUMP

1989 Oldsmobile Ciera • 4 cylinder 2WD Automatic • 91,000 miles

1989 Olds Cutlass Cierra Cruiser Wagon with 91,000 Original Miles well maintained, Interior / Exterior Excellent condition. 2.5 liter I4 engine supplied by Pontiac, Automatic Transmission. The engine seized during a very cold AM start-up (negative 20 degree temp). Car ran for aprox 7 mins then died. Can not turn flywheel by hand. Removed all spark plugs-- no signs of water / coolant in cylinders. Oil level full on dipstick, drained oil and it shows slightly dirty with no visual metal flakes / debris. I can not locate any replacement oil pumps. All parts stores say they can not order since Pontiac no longer exists. Can you tell me my options? I do not want to scrap this car but may have to. : ( Thank you

What about a used pump? And did you do an internet search for a pump? Use google.
