check the dip stick. If it shows way overfill, then you have fuel dilution in the oil. This is just a longshot guess but it does match your symptoms. If this proves to be so, do NOT under any circumstance try to start this car.
Fuel dilution is caused by leaking injectors.

How could you read the oil pressure guage if you couldn't get it started? Even if the pump runs it doesn't mean the fuel pressure is right, or even if fuel is flowing. The regulator could have failed, or the pump itself could be running but not outputting anything (not as likely), the filter could be clogged badly (again not as likely). The fuel pump volume should be checked along with the pressure.
#69 of 69 Mini stalls while driving

I have a 2009 Mini Cooper S automatic which is stalling while i am driving. Also, when I went to start it this morning, it attempted to kick over but wouldn't until the 8th attempt. Is this a fuel injection issue? I received a letter from the mini manufacturer regarding their high pressure fuel pump in which they have extended the warranty due to problems. The car has only 39,000 miles.
