Check the throttle body sensor, also clean the throttle body good with CRC cleaner...

check you fuel pressure and filter

Checked fuel pressure and filter and checked throttle position sensor, all good. The car starts when cold but after few mins it just shuts off. When it shuts off and try turning the car back on it won't start and all the fuel injectors start making a clicking noise. But when it's cool it starts right up and injectors don't make that clicking noise.

Timing or cam shaft sensor?

Scratch that. Sorry..

Already replaced the battery, ecm, coils, fuel filter. And checked all cylinders, spark plugs, distributor. I was originally told it needed a new crank shaft position sensor...but the car doesn't have one. Running out of ideas what it could be

Could the pick-up coil be bad in the distributor

Check the MAF sensor. Mass Air Flow..

That's all I can think of. They can't be checked but you can try clean it out with CRC...

ICM. Ignition Control Module. The coil packs sit on it..

Hope that helps..

with your injectors making noise i would think they don't have fuel to them. you might try getting it to die then spray a little fuel in the air intake at the throttle plate see if it kicks off or acts different. be careful with doing that it could back fire so don't keep the spray bottle close

Nope It didn't make any difference. when the distributor tests good, could it still be shorting out when it gets

hot?

the ignition module can but so can the coil. i don't know on the pick up coil but look at the wires inside the distributor to the pick up maybe move them around and check to see if open spots on them is there a vac hose running to the distributor

It is. The coil packs sit in top of it..Its called the ICM. They are bout $100.00. They do go bad often..
