Ignition module is failing when hot, slight chance it may be the crank pick-up.... but they are both in the same module

it happens randomly though, so will be fine for an hour or two and then suddenly. In the last month the things that have been changed fixed are - leak in the temperature housing - new battery - new break pads - new coil pack - corroded wiring fixed - computer re-coded - new/fixed crank angle sensor Also I have tried two mechanics.
