Default car starts for a few seconds then dies...

I already did a search but most of the threads dont have the final answer. The are no codes and all 4 wires are sparking. The car starts fine but if I give it gas it chokes and starts to die. Even if I leave it alone it'll just run for a few seconds and just start dying by itself. Throw me some ideas here so I know where to start playing around. I have no idea if the TPS or the MAP sensor have anything to do with it cause if it did it would throw a code. Could it be that the fuel pump

How many miles do you have on it. Clogged fuel filter maybe?

Sounds like a typical fuel pump problem. Put a gauge on it and start it. Watch if the PSI drops when it dies. If it doesnt drop then continue further troubleshooting elsewhere.
