Three things to check first.

Release the alternator/fan belt and try turning the engine. This era of van had a alternator sizure problem that could disguise itself as a siezed engine or failed starter.

2nd Undo the torque converter bolts and try, very rare but a piled up transsmission can case this.

3rd Remove all the spark plugs. Have seen it once where a coolant leak killed the engine then made it look seized.

Good Luck
