I was driving my car and the engine light came on, the car died for a split second, car came back on then engine light came on again, car died again. I had the car towed home and went out a few days later to see if it would start and it did. I moved it shut it off and it wouldn't start again. Next morning it started again but died after about 2mins wont start, it will turn over but wont start.What could be wrong??? I just replaced fuel pump and filter and had another distributor put on it because it did the same thing about a month ago.When I replaced all that the car worked fine for a month. Suggestions Please!!!!

Did you use a factory quality distributor? I have seen lots of problems with used and after market Distributor parts for the Honda.
On certain models the ignition switch binds. The ignition switch needs to be replaced to repair this issue.
