Sounds like one of your relay fuses that run from the battery post to your cars electronics. Start with the visible ones first . Yoou actually have to open each relay and look to see that there are no shorts in the system. If that doesnt work then sell it to the next sucker

Check your coil,it is biult into the distributor,but can be changed sepreatly from it.Sounds like it is getting hot and killing the fire to car,then cools and go,s on again for a little while.
