has your Civic ever had the 'updated' rear upper control arms replaced?? IF not, the very bad and rapid inner edge wear is due to that , and an alignment alone , will NOT fix it.It had been a warranty extension, but that campaign was over, years ago.
Question Answered: oil pump weak or bad

Agree with other replies, but with a few questions to add to the guesswork puzzle; how many miles on the engine, and what is the idle specification on the under hood emission sticker? 550 sounds kinda low to me, even if it is in drive. Low idle combined with sludged up oil pick-up screen?

Why would you suspect the pump? What symptoms? How often has it had a filter and fluid service? Using OEM fluid and filter?
Question Answered: Would you buy a BMW X5 AWD V8 that has 190k miles?

IF you are buying it from a used car lot, I would say a definite "NO". IF you are buying it through a 'private seller', then I would seriously question the lack of maintenance records (and STILL say NO). At that mileage, I would prepare for some major maintenance/repairs very soon. As has been suggested , have it inspected by an unbiased BMW specialist (if that's possible), and be able to take it for a nice leisurely 'joy ride' (test drive), of at least 2 hours, and see how it does. If the 2 hour drive request is declined by the seller, then again, I would suspect hidden issues! Good luck!
Question Answered: Why does my engine shake after it warms up?

From your description, you may want to get it to a shop immediately, although if it's been like that for almost a month, the damage may be done. Sounds like bad misfires possibly due to a blown head gasket(s)---blown head gasket(s) due to ongoing coolant leak.
Question Answered: How do I reset the ignition

Have you verified that the battery is at full charge and that the alternator is working? IF 'yes' to either of those, HOW did you verify? Sounds more like a dying battery due to a failing/failed alternator, rather than a key/security issue.

how many miles since the timing belt was last replaced? when you try to start it, does it seem like it is cranking(spinning) faster than usual?
