I don't know anything useful about this, but did you notice his feedback score is more than 4 million!

Before it gets worse.
Take the distributor off, check that that the three spring 'flaps' are intact on the rotor arm.
I had one ( of the three ) fall off and get 'mashed up' in the Hall Effect timing magnets.
Amazingly, though it stopped the engine on several occasions, it always started and ran again.
A real puzzle , until I found the problem.
Only other problem is likely to be bearings, easy to replace.
