Always a good idea to change plugs, wires, cap and rotor every 30,000 miles.

Let's straighten out some terminology. Crank is the action of the engine being turned over by the starter. Crank-No-Start is cranking over with the starter motor and not starting. Running is the engine firing off and running after the starter is disengaged.

Thanks for "the help" it starts runs but after a bit it starts to bog down. Smells like its getting too much gas. Then when i kill it and i start it back up i have to put gas to the floor for it to crank back up

Biggest players in order of importance are:

MAP, CTS, IAT.

Without being there, it seems like your MAP sensor is bad or the vacuum source to it is non-existant or messed up in some way.
