My car has been dieing on me off and on for the past week, I can get it to start again after I let it sit for a lil bit and sometimes after I disconnect and reconnect the battery. It will idle for about 10-15 minutes and then just die! And again I let it sit and it will fire right back up to the same effect. I did change fuel filter and had to change plug wires after my 3rd cylinder wire was all corroded at the distributor cap...? but with new wires it still acts up. So I'm leading to sensors, which sensors will shut the engine down? now the car runs good while running and it just shuts off like I turned the key off, no spitting or sputtering. would it be crank sensor? or could it be a coil problem, distributor problem? I'm at a loss as to what it could be. Also the check engine light is not on while this is going on, but it will flash on for a sec after I try restarting it, but doesn't stay on.....please help...anyone?
what sensors could kill my engine if not operating correctly? on 1999 Acura Integra

ck dist this is a very common issue with these. coil is inside pull cap and look for debri inside.
