Check fire at each plug and test each plug and wire while warm and cold, and look for vacuum leaks. When you replaced dist did it come with new Trigger Pickup Assembly, what about the coils, may be fried or not getting the signal and also the computer may be bad, may even have some bad fuses look at all under dash & hood. Make sure your ground to frame is good.
