After driving 15 to 30 minutes when you come to a stop the engine shuts down.

somethins gettn hot in the electrical-components are old an worn makin resistenc--take off distributer cap and inspect for corrosion inside-clean or replace--plug wires cud be old tho they look gud outside--coil shud be tested and ignition module--may also be wiring issue in harness--or a fuel problem

when replacing the starter was there an aluminum heat shield?
It would go between starter and the block. It may have been
discarded earlier and would solve the problem.

I was driving down the road home from work yesterday and my 91 accord just shut off. i tried restarting it but it wont start. sounds like it wants to but wont.. what could it be.

Could be one of a few problems by your description. Ignitor unit(inside distributor housing) has failed.which would have no spark. P.G.M.F.I main relay failed,lose of fuel. Or very possibly has a timin belt that has jumped time or broke,this either would sound(if broke)like engine is spinning extremely fast will cranking over,(can also have someone watch through oil cap hole and see if there is cam movement while cranking over)if jumped time engine will try and stumble start but not quite,possibly backfiring while trying to start.either or requires belt replacement minimum and very good possiility of bent many miles?
