Took this off OBDII codes site, hope it helps
Tech notes
The most common cause that will trigger the P1320 code is the ignition coils, one or more ignition coils may have failed. Even tough the coils may be working OK, the resistance for one or more of the coils is greater or smaller that what the Engine Control Module (ECM) is expecting. Measuring the resistance with the coil out of the vehicle may not show any failures, usually the coil fails under heavy conditions (hard acceleration) or certain temperatures.

The P1320 code means that there is problem with the "Ignition Coil" or the wire to the ignition coil. For some models without individual ignition coils the Ignition Coil is inside the distributor and the distributor need to be replaced to fix the problem.

did you find the problem yet?

Have you checked for a spark at each plug? If not work your way back through the ignition system. If you do check the fuel system, although I don't think a fuel problem would throw that code?

So its too hot. Lean fuel, ignition timing, possible vacuum leak?
