get it to act up where it will not start and when cranking it over you see no fuel pulse out of the injectors when cranking it over visuallyconnect a TEST LIGHT with the test light clip end to 12 volts right at the battery then unplug the 4 wire connector at the distributor basewith the key ON do the injectors pulse in fuel every time you touch the purple/white wire terminal in the connector you unplugged ?

No fuel...again it seems heat related it ran ok this that the day got hot, it won't start

with the test light connected to 12 volts and the key ON touching that terminal in that connector does NOT make the fuel pulse if you touch it with the test light tip then off it then back on the terminal ?if that is correct and your sure the test light is good and you did have the test light clip on 12 volts then with the key ON unplug both fuel injectors does one terminal in each injector connector show 12 volts ?
