Need help figuring out problem

07 Saturn Outlook XR

It was running fine, drove about 60 miles Cory driving for 20 then highway up to 80 mph for 30 and then city again for 10. Turned off for 2 hours to go into a doctor appt, it was parked where the front end was on a slight incline. I came back got in and it was a rough start, cranked for about 15 seconds, then 10 sec, then 30 seconds before finally starting. There was a bad vibration through the whole car and very rough idle. Tried to drive it and it would not accelerate even with pedal pressed to floor. After about 5-10 seconds of it revving up it would start to move it was very sluggish but started accelerating it still ran very rough with bad vibration. It would take close to a minute for it to get going faster than 10 mph then it would accelerate better and vibrations calmed down a little. Top speed I got it to was around 30 mph. I’ve had something like this happen before, something to do with the traction control made it run the exact same, it was parked for a couple hours then ran perfect again. So I pulled it into a parking lot to turn it off to maybe reset computers or something. Opened the hood and the whole block was vibrating and smelled like something electrical was burning. The battery ended up dying from trying to crank it so that’s as far as I got.
