4 or more proposed solutions from various mechanics. Buick dealer finally found it after I ranted and raved that they are the experts. Told them to call Detroit if they had to. They told me the catalytic converter had collapsed, causing backpressure in the engine. They figured out by disconnecting the manifold from the engine. Once they did that, the engine started immediately.
