Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! If there was a hole in the oil pan and the engine died on it's own I would first suspect it ran out of oil and locked up but that wouldn't explain the fuel pump not running. If the fuel pump ins't running and the starter doesn't engage then that points to the powertrain control module not being awake. If it isn't awake it could be a loss of power or ground or an internal failure. Have fuses been checked?Do you have communication with the PCM using a scan tool or coe reader?Will the engine turn by hand with a socket on the crank damper bolt?

The fuses have been checked and the engine is not locked up it will turn by hand haven't had a chance to put a scan tool on it

See if the PCM will communicate with a scan tool. If it doesn't communicate then it has either lost a power or ground feed or has failed. The powers and grounds should be load tested if no communication is found.

I will check that and let you know what happens
