V6 WONT START AFTER A SHORT DRIVE OR LONG DRIVE.

2000 Honda Accord • 220,000 miles

It cranks but no ignition and temp needle stays down it doesnt move. I have to wait like 10 min for temp needle to turn on and lets me start car. Also rpms are fluctuating when in neutral or park and in drive too. In dec. 2011 the catalytic broke inside clogging inside. I drove car for two weeks like this. I had to replace catalytic, egr valve, ect sensor, map sensor, got the ports cleaned also. Do I need a IAC VALVE, PCV VALVE, IDLE SPEED/THROTTLE ATUATOR, vacuum leak, OR SOMETHING ELSE. THERE ARE NO CODES TOO. THANKS

Start with a scan and let me know if you have any codes, not all codes will set a check light.

Possibly a faulty distributor module or coil, check that the plug gaps are not excessive, start here.
