I drive an 85 prelude, and have same problem within 10-20mins of starting the car.
Obviously just cause its cold, it takes about 10mins of sittin there with rpm at abotu 2k to warm up. Or you can let the car die a few times, eventually engaging the choke. (Not necessarly good for your car though).
The other thing, could be your timing. If you adjust your timing it changes where your car idles at.
If your timing is too low then your call will idle at 500-600rpm and the car will just die everytime gas is released and this rpm is reached.
Pretty sure if you go into some mech shop and tell them you want your timing bumped up to 1100 or 1000 or w/e they will do it for cheap. I think you can do it yourself with a timing gun but im not sure.
I hope this adress's your problem.
