Four years ago my 92 Accord needed a distributor. Recently I have been experiencing a miss in the engine. The miss is errant and without a pattern. However when driving it is bad enough to jerk the car and if idling you can easily feel the car shake when it happens. Only happens for a split second but it is happening more often. I was advised to replace the distributor again which I did with no change in the problem. Any ideas on what the problem could be. Thank you.

Check your secondary ignition components (cap, rotor, ignition wires, plugs)

F4i_guy, Cap and Rotor are in good condition as are the wires. All replaced 6-7 months ago. Plugs are brand new. I read somewhere that the main relay under the dash could cause the problem as sometimes the car will not start and a few minutes later it will. Any thoughts on that? Thank you.
