Look for oil under the distributor cap. If you see any spots or puddles of oil under it you have the ubiquitous oil leak coming through the distributor issue. I had the same problem with my 94 Altima.
Carefully take off the distributor cap, get some contact cleaner and spray down the encoder wheel and wipe out the excess oil. "Be careful, if you chip or break the encoder wheel you'll be shopping for another distributor shaft!!" You may want to replace the gasket on the cap if you feel ambitious (However I never did and since cleaning out the distributor my Altima has been running great for the last 15K miles...)

Car starts runs fine drive about 10 miles and it shuts of just like you turn the key off then it will back fire at times let it set for awhile it will start back up and run

Possible fuel pump problem. Check pressure at port on intake.
If the hose is long enough and made to withstand the pressure, it can lay on the windshield, held by a wiper blade to be read while driving.

there could be a timing problem but it sounds alot like a fuel pump try a fuel pressure test it sound like the pump is taking awhile to build pressure try switching the key on and off waiting about three seconds inbetween and see if it will start if so it indicated a week pump.the pump should hold pressure atleast 5 min without dropping 10 psi also when the pump is going out after when it gets heated up it will shut off and not come back on until it has cooled back down give that a try and see if that helps
