CAR WON'T STAY RUNNING

I HAVE A 94 PROBE GT WITH 114000 MILES ON IT. A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO IT QUIT RUNNING AND WOULD NOT START AGAIN. I HAD NO SPARK, SO I CHANGED THE DISTRIBUTOR AFTER TESTING IT. WITH THE NEW DISTRIBUTOR THE CAR WILL START AND RUN FOR ABOUNT 20 MIN THEN DIE. WHEN YOU CRANK THE ENGINE AFTER IT DIES I GET NO SPARK BUT IF IWAIT FOR AT LEAST 30 MIN THE CARWILL START AGAIN AND RUN ANOTHER 20 MIN REPEATING THE PROCESS. I CHANGED THE PLUGS, WIRES, CAP, ROTOR, AND CRANKSHAFT POSITION SENSOR SO FAR. WHEN IT DIES IT DOESN'T SAVE A FAULT CODE. IN NEED OF ANY IDEAS. DO YOU THINK THE NEW DISTIBUTOR IS BAD?

Do you
have the same problem?

The distributor was bad. Put new won in and car runs great. I ran it for over 3 hours today just to test it out. I think I fried the other distributor when I ran it with the bad spark plug wires (at the time I did not know they were bad). I think I burned out the resistor in it so when it got hot it quit working.
