Default First Toyota and going crazy!!!

just bought a 92 2.2l automatic w 184K miles a few weeks ago, ran like a champ! 4 days ago, I get off the highway and it dies! wont start back up! Ive replaced: plugs, wires, cap, button, igniter, dist, coil (i know, just in case though the one w the dist got damaged) ecu, redid the timing belt and IM STILL LOSING SPARK! heres the funny part, when it wants to run, you have to advance the dist all the way to get it to catch, then you can bring it back to norm, car runs for a minute or two then dies. Check the plugs and yep, lost spark again. Im going crazy!! ive tested the grounds, fuses, relays, even took the main one and put it in the fridge incase it got too hot and cut the car off, no fix! Is there something im missing? ive gone over the timing, totally redid it and still nothing. Im a Ford truck person, have been for years but need a cheap car for school and my 351 windsor will kill me! Ive had 5 different mechanics on this car and still nothing!!! PLEASE!!!! This has to be something stupid that Im missing!!

^^^^^ Im on my 6th dist from 2 different parts stores, going tomorrow to a pull and pay to pull one from a car that ran before it got wrecked etc. Also replaced the fuel filter, ugh it was nasty! Also replaced the fuel pressure regulator, it read 50-53 when it was suppose to be between 32-44(?).
