I have had a couple of Honds do this, and everytime is has wound up being the ignition module, they can be really hard to catch doing it cause they quit working and once they stop they cool just enough to start working again. Then there is the part, sometimes it is cheaper to replace the entire distributor than to just replace the ignition module. HTH
