Default 1989 Acura Integra having problems starting up?

I have a 1989 Acura Integra that i just bought, it was running strong and perfect for 4 days, then one morning i parked it and it wouldnt start back up, it would crank but not start...

So 20 minutes later, it decided to start up when i turned the ignition.

So im driving back home and it stalls on me on the way home at

a red light.... then 30 minutes later after i pushed it to the side, it started right back up! (the car likes messing around with me)

The next day it started again, i drive to the next city, and it shuts back down, and i gotta wait 30 minutes again!!!

I bought a brand new battery and that wasn't the case, and im wondering if i buy a brand new main relay if that will solve my

hectic problem.

some guy rolled up and said it might be vapor lock?? but on the internet it sais it might be my main relay

any help?

If it cranks its not the starter or battery. the main relay could be it.. if youre driving in extreme temps 90 degrees + or less than 35 or 40 degrees it could be the coolant or antifreeze. Hope this helps
