Question about Dodge Cars & Trucks
This truck runs fine for 30 min, (49,000 miles) on it. Then it quits, no spark from coil. Changed coil, rotor, stator, wires. After it cools down quite a bit, it restarts for another 30 min. Any Ideas ?
Year make and model, and are you loosing power to the coil when it will not start ?

SOURCE: quits no spark for a while
It is most likely the thin wire that hangs off the side of the distributor. They often short out and have cracked insulation allowing them to short out. You can get a spark tested and connect it to on of the spark plug wires and crank the car and look for spark. If no spark there, check for spark at coil wire. If you have there but not at plug, you know the problem is between the primary and secondary system-meaning most likely the cap and/or rotor in the distributor or bad wire previously mentioned. Have you changed the cap and rotor yet? These are inexpensive and will often solve the problem especially when the problem is when it is damp outside. The problem is not the fuseable links on the shock tower, like the other person mentioned. It probably is a loose wire somewhere like the distributor wire.

Not much info to go on, but It sounds like the ignition coil. What work or maintence has been done??? How many miles are on the vehicle?

Dodges have a high rate of failure in the engine ecu. If you can find you 5v supply that feeds the sensors. Ohm it to ground If it dose ohm out (shorted to ground) unplug your ecu and recheck.
