Diagnosing a vehicle through a conversation is risky. The only reason I have replaced a distributor is because of a failed bearing or an oil leak. There are components inside the distributor that could fail such as the ignition coil or igniter, but these should be tested when the vehicle stalls and they do not come with a new distributor assembly. Other possibilities include a PGMFI main relay or an ignition switch. The correct way to diagnose the vehicle is to find the faulty part when the engine has stalled.
