    If it starts and runs, it's not seized. Does it quit running at the end of the driveway.

    Have a manual oil pressure test done, just possibly a bad oil sending unit.

    If it's only a sending unit, it would be a small issue. If the oil pressure is bad, get rid of it or replace/rebuild the engine.
