Check the timing belt settings. Bring it to top dead center and verify that that all the marks are where they are supposed to be. Had that same problem 5 years ago and it was that the belt had jumped 1 tooth due to stretching. Hope this helps.

I don't know of a TBC light for Honda but there is a TDC... If that's what you meant to type. Its the "Top Dead Center" sensor
The TDC (top dead center) positioning sensor is another name for your crankshaft position sensor. This sensor measures the position of your crankshaft and helps with the proper firing of your spark plugs when you start your engine. The TDC sensor on the '97 Honda Accord is located on the underside of the engine block. Replacement TDC sensors can be purchased at your Honda dealership. This is not a difficult repair and can be done in about 15 minutes.
Happens when it is hot, runs fine after cooling off? I had a 91 that did that. It was the ignitor, which fires the spark plug and the fuel injector for each cylinder. Very mysterious and hard to diagnose. It can only be determined while it is NOT working and the tech has instruments to check it.
