You just doubled the cost of the vehicle. Tell us more details about
everything you checked under the hood, mileage, location, conditions and
don't replace anything until you prove the problem.
To clarify, did you replace the distributor's--
Did you use OEM distributor parts or aftermarket ones?
First thing I would have checked was the coil, based on the
symptom that it does not die until after warmup. Had the
same symptom with my 91 Civic a few years ago. It was the
coil. Because the shop was messing with me a bit, I ended up
getting an entire new distributor (all of the above). In
hindsight, given the age of the car and other known ailments
(or coming ailments) with the original distributor, I think
it was a good choice.
