I have a 2001 Buick lasabre customs . it will only crank when you have the gas and brake mashed. At first it said 6 percent oil. We got oil and it won't crank. What could be wrong?

6% oil most likely refers to the life left between oil change, not volume in the engine. Did you just add oil until it was at the top hole on the dipstick, or just dump a bunch of quarts in there?

It sounds like you should get a mechanic involved, unless I'm misreading your comfort level here.

Could be anything from MAF to fuel pump to cat to vac leak... Getting in there and going thru the troubleshooting process is the only way to learn what's up.
