Possible Ignition Control Module, or coil. You can take them off and have tested at Auto Zone. Heat can affect these items when there starting to go bad.

Cam and crank sensor will do it also

Well I just changed out the ignition control module and the coil but the problem still continues I guess the next thing I can try is the cam and crank sensor I just have to locate them to change them out anybody have the diagram of the location of the sensors ?

Was the ICM or the coil bad? Don't be just throwing monies at this...Have things tested first, diagnose the problem.

My auto zone guys are not very helpful so I found the parts online pretty cheap I just figured it's a older car so putting new parts on it wouldn't be a bad thing plus I am learning as I go along

Thats ok then and is justified to do so. One thing you may want to check would be the fuel pressure, but put a new fuel filter in first.

It was the distributor after replacing it everything is A O.K.

Glad you gotter fixed. The distributor would have a new ICM & pick-up coil.
