try replacing the crankshaft position sensor - it's a common problem on the 88's - only about a $30 part

Have the charging system checked for proper operation. If battery is not being charged properly and goes weak the electronic control modules within the vehicle will start shutting down and cause all sorts of drivability issues

Something in your computer controlled ignition system is shutting down. You need to check for trouble codes. Check for spark on a spark plug wire right after it stalls, or does it start right back up?

It will start some times and not other and shut when running


Check ASD Relay (Automatic Shut Down) Kills fuel and spark. Computer could be telling it to shut down, but usually Relay is bad. Key Switch could also be bad, get a good manual and a VOM (Volts, Ohms, Milliamps) meter, and make sure you have juice both coming in and going out, in the respective key positions. Jiggle wiring while testing, to check for loose connections

Driving and the car shuts off automatically


Hondas have problem with ignitor in distributor that overheats and shuts off spark momentarily. then car will restart and shut off some time later.

Wouldn't hurt to change wires anyway if old, especially if new plugs were installed. Get the most out of gas mileage that way!!!!!!!!
