Was backing up in driveway and started to get stuck so put it in drive and car died. Its a 97 ford taurus. Had starter tested and replaced next day and still wont start. It was only running about 6 minutes. I was told engine seized up but find it hard to believe. What could it be and what should I try to do to get it running

Is the starter working? If so, check to see if you are getting spark and fuel to the engine. For directions, see our homepage under the DIY section.
