Change coil packs is what I'd start with.

Hang on! First check cam and crank sensors if no spark at ANY wire/plug. If you have spark at ANY of the four connectors THEN the sensors are good and proceed to replace coil.

Ok so I have spark and car will run when u take MY throttle body off and continue to spray gas into the throttle body. But when gas quits so does car

So wouldn't that be a fuel issue and not a spark issue? Can you hear the fuel pump prime when you turn the key from ACC to ON?

Pretty hard to hear when the pump's in the gas tank? If it'll run on sprayed fuel then simply check the fuel line. If ok then the idle air control valve at the throttle body? I've little experience with the H6, so dig deeper, and good luck.

yeah, it is tough I imagine. it has to be really quiet and you either get in the car and shut the door or try to kneel down to hear under the car. My festiva has a shorter wheel base, so I can use a mechanics stethoscope to the tank and still turn the key. But at least with both of these cars you can pull the back seat and get to the pump.
