Maybe time for a new battery? You might also have corroded terminals. Try replacing the terminals first and the battery next (if its old).

Search CPS testing. I would be suspicious of that part failing. For giggles, try unplugging it, spraying out the connector with contact cleaner, and plugging it back in. You might be surprised.

I want to thank those that Have replied to my problem, I have found and fixed the issue.
It turns out that my problem was caused from The sensor that is inside the Distributor replaced the whole distributor because it was showing signs of corossion due to the fact I live on the oregon coast and the salt air was getting to it. So once again ty for the advice, and may others be able to use this thread as help in the future.
