So. After all of this stuff, it wasn't the ignition control module at all. The car went back to doing misfiring and hesitating like a person learning to drive a manual. Then stalling. It was the Camshaft Position Sensor. I also found the oil leak. There is a gasket around the crankshaft flywheel and that is leaking, getting oil all over the sensor and the sensor was failing. A $30 part.
Benn driving it for a few months and now the car won't start. It will crank but not start. I have had it at two shops and they can't find the problem. They both tell me the plugs aren't getting a spark, but they tested everything on it and it tested good. They can't figure it out and gave the car back to me. I thought it was the cam position sensor that failed again (the cranking but not starting is the indicator) since I used a reman'ed part, but both shops said it tested good.
Coil, cables, ignition. Etc have all been tested. Timing belts checked out OK too
