wants to die when I try to start it but the battery
isn't even a year old and then my low oil pressure
light turns on but it has brand new oil and oil filter
and lower oil pan on it when ur under the hood u
can hear it trying to start but it just won't there's

Get a battery charger and recharge the battery fully, nothing fouls things up like low voltage, while that is happening get as much fuel out of the tank as you can and put in some good fuel with some octane booster mixed in to counter the reduced fuel that might remain, check the spark plugs and replace if they look bad, as you have already tried to start it putting a small amount of oil in each cylinder is a mute point, hopefully the rings weren't stuck in the cylinder and destroyed themselves, sitting is one of the worst things there is on an engine if it is not setup to do so. Once the battery is fully recharged, just turn the key on for a few seconds then off for 10 seconds, do this at least three themes this will cycle the fuel through the fuel rail, after it starts you will then want to replace the fuel filter as all that varnish from the old fuel will wind up there. Good luck and hope things go better for you.
