After 5-10 mins engine shuts down then you get no spark at all. Check engine lights does NOT come on, car is NOT overheating and the cooling fans are working. Car starts back up after approximately 20 minutes as if there is not a problem. Before all this started the car had a broken spark plug wire which has been fixed, then drove vechile for approximately 2 miles and problems started over. New distributor New spark plug wires was installed last year. And plugs installed this week

I think the problem is possibly the ignition module

Any helpful suggestions are appreciated

I don't know if this may or may not be you problem, but I had the same issue with my Mazda pickup and troubleshooted the heck out of it to find out it was the computer going bad. If its one of the models that Mazda made, its sure to go out. I found several websites that explained it better than I am, now. Basically, Mazda used some cheap capacitors in them that would slowly bleed out onto other computer components on the board, making all kinds of wierd issues, depending on what it damaged. Check it out visually and see if you can see any burned or melted parts on it and its sure to be you problem. Hope this helps.
