Default My 1994 Honda Civic with VTec cuts out once it gets to running temp.?

It cuts out at idle and sputters as I give it gas until it reaches higher rpm. Getting worse by the second. Unfortunately I dont have the funds to take it to a shop, so Im on my own. Please advise.

I would be first suspicious of fuel starvation due to water or dirt/rust/varnish in fuel. I would change the fuel filter - see if that helps. Run some fuel drier - dissolves water and runs it through. Then add some Techron to the tank to clean out injectors. Also check for any unusual things like vacuum leaks or malfunctions of evap system etc.
