You do understand that engines, when they seize, do so while running.
An engine that seizes has suffered severe physical, internal damage.
They can not do this unless they are in full operation.
Engines that seize literally come to a perfect stand still for no good reason when just a minute ago it was running dandy, sometimes a noise becomes evident, this noise can be a short knock or the sound of something breaking, or it can be some racket like scraping and clattering, and other times it makes no noise at all.
They sure don't seize while sitting idle.
At least not in that sense.
It takes very little oil to keep them happy, an engine can literally sit for years and still start right back up...
Small engines that is, granted it helps if they're out of the weather.
That having been said it might need some tweaking and tuning.
