I have a 1997 toyota corolla 1.6 , I change distributor new, crankshaft sensor, wires

What comes to mind is the ECU getting hot, it will operate fine until both engine heat and maybe the operating of the ECU itself gets hot, it's 17 years old if it's never been changed before. They can be had for a little as $55. If it was mine that's what I would try. Also make sure your new battery is grounded properly, a real good grond on negative cable to chassis.
It probably has the 4A FE (the 1.6L) and has OBDII since it's later than 1996. Even if your CEL is not lit get those OBD codes scanned, might help eliminate guesswork if I am wrong and the ECU is Ok.
Like David stated, scanning the codes would be the first thing to do, If you can gain access to an OBDII scanner that has "live data" capabilities you can watch the inputs and outputs, while running it to failure hopefully you can see what component or system fails, if the screen reads no or lost communication while running check the ecm power relay, replace if defective recheck system, if it does it again then it is a good possibility that the ECM has a thermal problem.
It is a 4A FE engine, i try 2 use computers, maybe a wire is shorting the system, yesterday the car run, work for two hours,and stop. i try for a spark via the spark plug to see if i get spark, nothing no spark, 15 minutes later the car starts again i am getting frustrated please help
Are you sure it was a NEW distributor, if it was a rebuilt, the module in the distributor could have the problem.
I change two new distributors, and i change the computer (used) still getting the same reading P1300 igniter mulfuntion, it'is impossible two distributors to be defective, I have never have seen a problem like this, the only think that maybe a broken wire, or mass air flow dirt on the filement
Igniter malfunction could also mean there is a fault in the igniter circuit not necessarily the igniter, recheck the ignition circuits into and out of the distributor, pay special attention to the stress points and grounds.
I will do that, thank you for the information christos PS will post the resolution
resolution for the following problem, igniter malfunction P1300 Code: you have to change the igniter that is located, on the left side below the master cylinder, it is screw on the body off the shock tower I hope this note will be use full, Standard blue streak number LX 721or Delphi the price is lower.
Hi Sir, Did you get your problem fixed? I have the same problem, if you did please tel me what to do?
check the fuse that powers the ignition. you need to clean where it sits . i had similar problem a real pain
