Hi what about the cam shaft position sensor....this is the hall effect in the distributor ...also check the distributor shaft for play some of those years had bad bushings in the block and would wear out the drive gear ...also check your fuel pump relay for power when cranking ...the other issues they had are the coil heat sinks ..the metal part that bolts to the bracket....they tend to rust up and expand acting as a wedge cracking the coil making it short out or causing the spark to be week and as it heats up expands shorts out and kills the engine

I will definitely look into those suggestions, thank you
