You need to figure out if its the motor or the tranny.

Did you have good oil pressure before the rear tires locked up on you?

what I would do is,
1- jack up the rear end ( both rear wheels OFF the ground) secure the car with axle stands.

2- Once the car is off the ground drain the old engine oil (Note: color or odor of engine oil pieces of metal ect...) You might even want to take off the sump cover just to be sure nothing is blocking the oil pump ( it only takes a few minutes) Install new filter then refill motor with the right amount.

3- Remove the coil plug ( So that there is no spark) then try to crank the motor. If the motor turns over freely ( You should start to see oil pressure on the gauge).

4- connect the coil wire then fire up the motor ( keep a eye on the OIL PRESSURE) If it does not build up SHUT IT OFF . If it runs like normal your problem is else where.
