Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

It's going to require some testing at the time the problem is happening to determine exactly what is wrong, but if the distributor has truly been ruled out then I would first suspect a bad crank sensor, followed by the PCM.

The first step in diagnosing the problem is to use a code reader or scan tool to see if any fault codes are setting. Have you checked for codes?
