Honda accord stalls en route

I have a 1994 Honda Accord that runs great…until it arbitrarily stalls while driving and will restart minutes later…no other symptoms. No computer codes came up when the mechanic checked it. I had a tune up, replaced the ignition switch and fuel filter all to no avail. Anybody got any ideas on what to try next??

This can be caused by two (three?) components in the distributor. It’s more cost, and time, effective, to change the whole distributor with a re-manufactured distributor. Here are some at Auto Zone http://www.autozone.com/N,16400030/shopping/partTypeResultSet.htm I’m torn between the one for $162 and the one for $769 …Nah, not really torn!
