What do you mean by "I cleaned the points"? If that means you cleaned the terminals inside the distributor cap you may have left dirt particles inside the cap that causes arcing inside the cap. It's also possible that the distributor cap is cracked/damaged. If you haven't replaced the distributor cap & rotor in the last 60,000 miles you might want consider it now.

Have you verified that the coil is OK?
