Replace your Idle Air Control valve.

there is nothing wrong with my idle, it idles fine. how does the iac have anything to do with not getting a spark once the car is warmed???

Didn't read the last sentence.....you may have a bad pickup coil in the distributor.

pick up coil?? its all brand new!!

In your distributor....you didn't list that as new. The pickup coil inside the distributor can fail and cause a no-start condition. There have also been some failures of the radio noise suppressors inside the distributor which can short out. It is recommended to replace the whole distributor with a complete genuine Toyota distributor if any of its components fail.

NEVERMIND!!! You obviously didnt read my initial quam. It starts and runs.
