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.
have the same problem?

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.
