Question about 2007 Chevrolet Impala LS Sedan New Cars
Check your coil out if it is bad the car will run until coil gets hot then shut down and you have to wait untill it cool off to start

How did you set the timing after re-installing the distributor?? Sounds to like the timing may be too fast.

I have a '81 Firebired that did the same thing with the factory-issued Flintstone-mobile 3.8L V6. Everything but the starter worked correctly: new 185 thermostat, perfect 50-50 coolant misture, no leaks, etc., but still had to wait 1-2 hours for a cool down.
It may be that your original starter is dying. Your starter relay is over-heating and opening the circuit. You can replace the starter and/or buy a pre-made heat shield for the starter or fab one yourself. Regardless, just remember that the goal is to keep the starter as cool as possible.
To prove this is in fact the problem get the engine hotter than usual in your driveway then shut it off. If it won't start cool it down with a bag of ice (don't burn yourself). Should take less than 5 minutes to cool it to start.
