Icon9 93 vtec won't start

The other day I was driving home and out of nowhere my prelude shuts off for no reason. So I rolled to the side of the road and started it up again fine, the car drove about fifty yards then stalled, Tried starting it again and it made about 30 yards and died. I continued this until I got to my house which was about 20 yards away at this point... thankfully.
Everytime I started the car it would stay on for less time, until finally it wouldnt start up at all. It just cranks without any signs of it wanting to turn over.
I had been having some issues with my throttle body prior so I that was the first thing i checked, I cleaned everything, sealed it and threw it back on.
My next thought was the fuel pump, it wasnt humming on start up so it seemed reasonable to me. changed the fuel pump and its still acting the same.
I checked all of my vaccuum lines, changed the spark plugs, pulled the distributor cap off (distributor looks brand new), checked the fuel line at the head, (it has fuel) checked the timing belt (still good). My next thought was the timing might be off but im not sure if that would cause this.

The only cel im getting is for a secondary o2 sensor.
Im literally about to give up on this car, If someone has any ideas id really appreciate it
