when my engine reaches a certain temp. why does it cut off while being driven? on 1996 Honda Civic

when engine is cold, it runs perfectly fine, but once it warms up the engine sputters and likes to cut off.

could be a bad distributor
very common for dist to fail
what's the best way for me to check it?
