If the motor is seized based on what you described, then damage has already been done unfortunately.  You are looking at a new engine.


You could try squirting a few shots of PB Blaster or WD40 down the spark plug holes and let it sit for a while, if it has rusted pistons and rings from sitting.  Beyond that, we don't know what caused the engine to seize.

Start shopping for a replacement engine. As others have said, no fluid will "unlock" an engine that seized up under those circumstances. The only time such a thing might help is if an engine is stuck because it's been sitting around unused for years and pistons are stuck in the bores.
