Start looking for another motor.

Nice but was add the oil is that not what to do in that situation


I don’t think it would of made any difference.


Adding oil after the engine is seized can't fix all the damage.


Well, after it over-heated the head likely warped, so that means the head gasket cannot seal correctly and is now leaking, along with possible scored cylinders from being ran low on oil.


Yep damage was already done before you added oil, all you have is a core engine, as it is a 93 it really not worth putting in a new engine, used one maybe.
