has it been acting up b4 now? one symptom I see a lot is the distributor will go
out, but they usually start off with driving along and the car just dies, then
after 30+ min's it will fire right back up.
I had something like that happening to my '94 Accord while driving
through a deep puddle during a rainy night. Tha engine just died in the
middle of the puddle. I tried to restart it several times to no avail.
After a minute or two of just standing there and not doing anything, I
was able to restart it with some initial rough idle, but I was able to
drive it home later as if nothing happened before. When I drove it a
couple days later to my favorite shop they found that the distributor
cap was cracked and it probably took in some splashed water when driving
though a puddle. I never had the same problem after the distributor was
replaced with a new one.
