You have a common problem; back in the early 90, the distribtors assemebly was causing alot of shut down problems for Hondas, the pickup assembly inside the distibutor would become hot and stop producing sparks/ engey to the sparks plugs. When cars came into the shop we would most of the time just replace the distributor assembly, but they can be kind of expensive thought, if you live near a salvage year it may be your best option for getting a good used one.
I suspect either the distributor or timing belt went south.
Can you remove the distributor cap and see if the rotor is turning while you crank the engine over?
if the rotor doesnt turn... , its the timing belt.
check for spark , but chances are , its the distributor... I've seen many honda distributors go bad .
if at all possible tow it on a flat bed so that all wheels are off the ground, if this is not possible, tow it with the drive wheels off the ground, if its front wheel drive tow with front off the ground, if its rear wheel tow with rear off the ground, if none of these options are possible, dont pull the car further than 50 miles and try not to tow it faster than 40 mph as this can possible cause transmission problems
Autozone may not have a scanner capable of retrieving these codes. Either way what you need is a diagnostic scanner that can read all the sensor data's. There really is no other way to diagnose this. It should go into the shop.
I HAD THAT PROBLEM WITH MY 1994 CHEVY LUMINA VAN. I WAS TOLED IT WAS MY TRANSMISSION. BUT I CHANGED THE COMPUTER WERE I BOUGHT THE FIRST ONE (auto zone) AND CHANGED GAS TO SHELL, THEY HAVE A NEW ADDITIVE IN THEIR GASOLINE AND IT RAN GREAT. THAT WAS A YEAR AGO AND IS STILL RUNNING NOW BETTER THAN EVER.
