CAR STALLS AFTER DRIVING IT FOR 20 MINUTES

1995 Honda Civic

Engine Performance problem
1995 Honda Civic 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 172530 miles

My car starts fine, but after drving it for 20 minutes the car stalls; sometimes at the stop light or while I'm driving.
I am able crank the engine immediatelly but, in most cases I need to wait 20 to 30 minutes before I can start the engine again. I had changed the distributor last year because my mechanic said the igntion coils bad and that he found oil in the distributor that may have contributed to the failure. Is this possible or should I be looking for another problem?

Hi typerhond,

I would suggest checking the main relay, it most probably is failing intermittently.
