This could be any number of issues. The fact that it started back up again makes it even harder to trouble-shoot. Do you have any engine codes? Has it done it again? If so did it start up again? Do you notice anything else? Answers to these might help myself or someone else in CarGurus pinpoint a problem.

Spark, gas, or air. If you can find some place to check your computer, that may let you know what is up. I had that happen to me in my old '92 Integra and it turned out to be a bad distributor.

its the fuel pump. i had the same thing happen to mine. took me 3 years to troubleshoot. it would work then fail then work at random times and it was never broken when i was testing it. i thought i had a bad ecu, harness, injectors.. it turned out to be the pump.
