    92 Honda suddenly stops
    The problem with this car is driving me crazy. Car starts I am driving for a while and just stops. One time it happened at a red light another time while I was driving. When it stops the radio is still playing, I can use the hazzard lights but the power stearing is out. After a while, it starts and it could be fine for weeks and then suddenly it just stops again. Brought it to the mechanic who says he can find nothing wrong. I asked him to change the ignition relay switch because I read online that can be the problem. Wanted him to change the distributor because that is another reason this can happen that I read. He will not change distributor. Told me to drive the car and see what happens after the ignition relay switch was changed. I am afraid to drive this car far from home because I do not want to get stuck in the middle of the street or on the highway. Help! What is wrong? :eek:

    I also have a 92 honda accord and have owned this car for about 8 years and have had this happen 3 times in 8 years. The first 2 times I just changed out the distributor and that was the problem, This last most recent time it happened I changed out the relay and that did absolutely nothing so I changed out the distributor and the ignition coil and checked my timing and for the current moment it seems to be okay. Hasn't died on me since last Friday :) ,
