Probably your distributor cap or rotor, also check the spark plugs and spark plugs wires. This may happen when , after a certain amount of time, the distributor becomes to hot, or the wires, and then a huge resistance is built. Did you notice that on a long distance your car would shut off than you have to let it cool down before it starts back ? On oldder cars it's a pretty common problem.
you probbably damaged the distributor coil when you pulled the wire off recommendations: try pulling battery lose for few and see if it helps replace distibutor coil and wires to plugs and replace plugs
looking down behind the distributor on the gearbox ,a triangle shape with 2 small bolts and a plug with wires in the centre.i had trouble finding it as well.hardest part was getting to it,it took me 30 mins to replace.
Ussually with the Preludes the main relay for the fuel pump needs to be replaced. One that i havent seen posted yet is the 'Coolant tempature switch' near the distributor some times becomes faulty. Cheap at local auto parts dealer.
