It actually seems like lack of fuel, check your fuel pressure first, should be 40PSI.  I'm guessing your fuel pump is going out.

To test the fuel pressure just hook up a fuel pressure gauge to your fuel rail on the schrader valve.

thanks going to test the fuel pressure tommorow. If it is not that could it be the coil pack.
One more thing when i did the plugs they were all dry and black (might want todo those more  often) does this give you any clues if the fuel presure is ok?

thanks

Yes it could be coil packs as well.
