Sounds like a bad crank trigger/magnetic pick up. Over time the magnets get weak, and will not always read correctly. Really there isn't a good test for it. It's a low cost part that is better to replace. Charles

Sounds like something with the electrical system.

Ignition: could be coil.
Or could be crank/cam sensors.
This one is a job for a dealer diagnostic machine.

It's more than likely the ignition module under the distributer cap failing when hot. When replacing the new one make sure to clean away the old thermal grease and install fresh grease. HTH
