A few more details would be helpful. Did the engine sieze or did the power just cut out? Do you have an automatic or a 4-speed?

Can you turn the engine over with the starter today, or by hand? How much oil is in the engine, on the dipstick?

What was the engine temperature at the time of the event? Are the belts ok?

A little more information might help get to the root problem, but someone in the area can pipe up with a recommendation for a shop. Good luck, Jim
