Default 1998 Honda Accord Electrical problem. . . ? ?

Hello, I have 1998 Honda Accord coupe v-tech. And lately its been giving me issues. I think it may be a sensor or cable. I drive it and as the car is moving it'll turn off on its own. I wait about 5 min and it turns back on. I've taken it to the mechanic and they said it was the fuel pump so they changed it but the problem didn't stop. Has anyone ever had this problem on their car? Thanks for the help in advance.

main relay problem? i'd say to isolate ur problem as a sorta quick guesses anyway, is its more on the fuel/ignition side. if starts fine, idles fine and can hold say 3,500 rpms in park easily without misfiring then i would restrict it to some kinda fuel delivery, and/or heat buildup on some kinda component/part problem. but yeah chk for the main relay, have someone help you w/ that. the 90-96 accords have a main relay that can be repaired by resoldering the solder joints on the relay or buy a replacement around 60 bucks.

for fuel problems, chk fuel filter, if old replace, test fuel pressure regulator and fuel injectors but those 2 need special testing. if can hold that 3,500rpms easily on a cold startup and only wen hot it craps out, then go for the main relay first.

hope this helps
