Changing the oil may not help here, remove the starter, place a proper socket on the nut that holds the flywheel on and try to turn the engine over clockwise! It may break free, but if it locked up, the damage has been done and an engine rebuild is in order! HONDA engines are made to tight tolerances and are easily damaged if run low on oil! SORRY
