The car starts first thing in the morning when cold. It will idle for 5 to 10 minutes fine. As soon as you give it some Gas it will die, then I can not get it to start again. No trouble codes present except for the long dash then 2 short ones. The fuses in the glove box are good, I do not know about the fusible links. The battery is new, all head lights and tail lights work fine. I have no spark after it dies. I am sure this has happened to someone else here. My question is what should I be looking into? Not that familiar with the ignition system on this thing. The car has 177,000 miles on it.

It turned out to be the ignition module. I took it in to a auto parts store, they tested it, and it failed. I will look at your link anyway, maybe I will learn something.
