Mini won't start

Any suggestions here?
Picked up a 2003 Mini Cooper s R53 at auction - theft recovery. Unfortunately, it will not run unless I use starter fluid. The more starter fluid I use, the longer it runs...I replaced the fuel pump, but it didn't help. Fuel filter will be here tomorrow. Looking for next steps? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Oh that is sad news. Can you read the ECU fault codees with an OBD2 scanner? Really need to look at that first before throwing money at new parts.

Two codes
P0442 - small Evan leak (expect its a bad gas cap b/c it will not ‘click’)
P1242 - Secondary Upstream Manifold Air Pressure Sensor Signal Too High in Deceleration
