I also changed the oil simply because I think it dumped gas there as well I could smell it on the stick and the oil looked very liquidy after removing it

When you are trying to start it floods the engine. Yes it could be the pressure regulator as well as a failing mass air flow sensor. Also the intake air temp sensor should be checked, as well as the ambient temp sensor.
Are all the cylinders flooding? or just one? I would also check the connectors on the DME for water damage causing a cross short.

Yes all the cylinders are flooding.
