1989 230E stalling. fuel distributor?

My 1989,230E(W124,4 cyl,8 valve) stalls every 2-3 days and starts as usual after resting for 1 hour. When it stalled last time I checked the fuel lines on top of fuel distributor. No fuel comes out of the lines. The fuel comes out after 1 hour and then the car starts as usual.The power connection to the fuel distributor is showing 0.5 volts with ignition on, 1 volts during cranking and 0 volts when engine is running.
Why there is no fuel coming out when the car is hot?
What else effects the fuel distibutor's decisions?
How can I diagnose what is wrong with the fuel distributor?
