My grandaughter has a 1995 accord ex 2.2 which quit while driving then statrtede again on and off. She took it to the honda dealer they anayliized it and said it needed a distributor which she had done. 3 months later the same thing happend by that time she was near me so I had it checked by a friend of mine who runs a repair shop. His computer said it needed a distributor. Now 4 dist. Later the same problem is occuring it is getting expensive, so now she wants to sell it. But I want it to run right. The first 2 dist. Were generic the last 2 hitachi. It has 175000 I tried just changing the module but that didn;t last long.
Do you
have the same problem?

Are you buying complete distributors or swapping some of the electronics over to the new ones? If you are swapping, the problem is most likely the part/parts that are being put in the new distributor. Exactly what code/codes does the PCM have in it?

I have done both, parts and whole dist. Same results. As far as the code none of the times that she has had the car analized did they include the code only what was needed. In fact my friend told me that the voltage to the coil was fluctating so he thought a new dist (the coil is inside) would do the trick. It lasted about 5000 miles. It is a stick shift, but that shouldn't make a diffrence. I'm baffled by it I'm from the old school air, fuel, and spark it should run.

Check on your paperwork and see if the code was noted somewhere. Might help figure this one out

No codes on any of the printouts, only prices and labor. Each time (3) a distributor was reccommended. Once I put in just the module and it ran for a while, then coil and module, finnally a whole dist. (3). The first 2 were genaric the last one was oem, Hitachi

Hoping for something that would tell us exactly what the problem is, ie. Module, cam sensor. In the dist so we can work backwards and see what could be shorting them out

Would the cam sensor be a seperate code? Somebody told me to check all of the wiring to the dist. To see if there is a bare spot.

Before it stops completely it would stutter at around 3000 rpms. It would do that for a couple of days before going kaput.
