You have to put the ignition on and wait for 5 seconds or more at the beginning of each start otherwise it just keeps turing over without firing up. I replaced the ignition switch and the electrical modual with no luck. The motor will also 'shudder' or shake occasionally at lower speeds, 60 to 70 Klms. Honda garage or my local garage cannot figure 'her' out. HELP!

Have the shops you've had it to been able to duplicate the symptom? What systems/items have they tested? What maint. history? OEM spark plugs and wires? Original dist.? Timing belt (how old?) Oil leaks from where and how bad (don't say none , at that mileage you at least have seepage some places).More info will help.
