Hi, this can be caused by an issue with passkey. Do you have a resistor pellet in your ignition key? Does the security light stay on when the engine fails to start? If yes, I recommend you bypsss passkey by cutting the wires and installing a resistor of the key's value at the bcm to fake it into believing the correct key is in the ignition.

Here are a few other areas where you may want to check if applicable to your current situation.
I hope you can find out what the culprit is as I know how frustrating it can be.Here are a few other reasons why your car may not be starting besides what you have already mentioned.
COMMON CAUSES OF NO COMPRESSION
Broken timing belt or chain (Belt failure will prevent the valves from opening. The engine will NOT run if the belt has broken, and it may have bent valves or other damage as a result of the belt breaking).
Broken camshaft (This can happen on an overhead cam engine if the engine has overheated, warped the head and seized the camshaft).
Plugged catalytic converter (Creates a restriction that causes exhaust backpressure to back up. Engine may start but usually dies within a minute or two)
I guess the most logical one in your case, after reading your story regarding when it happened would be a timing belt.
I had something similar to this happen on my '86 blazer. I was driving along and then "blip", at 55+ mph happily cruising along, the engine just cut out on me and wouldn't start again.
It would crank but wouldn't start. It ended up being an ignition module but you said they already changed your distributor so they more than likely checked or changed the module also.
Good luck with this!
