I'd say it might be the ignition control module. One of the symptoms of a failing module is once the car heats up you lose power, cools down, your fine again.

Part can be expensive, have it diagnosed before replacing.

Did u ever get your car fixed. Sounds like what ours is doing Replaced the distributor and still doing it
