This sounds like a bad (probably cracked) ignition coil.
First, the coil gets hot when operating, and this is normal.
If it is cracked, it gets hot to the point where its resistance gets so much higher that it cannot provide enough voltage for spark.
When it cools back down it starts working fine again.

Hey have you recently changed your head unit. I have a 2000 s10 2.2 and i recently hardwired my pioneer 4000ub head unit and the security light came on upon not starting. every time you try to start the car while the security light is on it will add 10 minutes onto your time. For the security light not to come on you need to check your wiring. just remember dont keep trying becuase it wont work!!! find the problem and fix it.

Sounds like the ECM is bad. This is a common problem, when the ECM gets hot there is a solder joint that seperates, it makes contact again once it cools down
