Default 98 Civic Engine Problem?

I have a 1998 Honda civic, most of the time it runs fine. Randomly through out the week it will have moments when the engine starts to rumble when i turn it on, the check engine light will start to flash, the car shakes and I feel like the car loses power. Then as i drive the car the symptoms gradually start to goes away. It doesn't always happen when I turn the car on some days it works perfectly fine with no sign of anything, some days it rumbles more then others. I'm wondering what kind of mechanic I should have take a look at it and whether it's something I can trouble shoot my self or fix on my own if its a minor issue.

if you find that it does this on rainy wet days . then its yur distributor ! I have a 97 civic and when I went through a huge puddle . my motor started vibrating & my check engine light was blinking . I felt my car start to loose its strength . What happen was when I was going thru the puddle water splashed under my hood & wet my distributor . it was a simple fix ! the next morning it took off my distributor & let it sit in the sun to dry . put it back on & NO problem ever since ! & I sure learned my lesson about huge puddles. if your distributor is getting wet from just rain yu can have a broken distributor cap . what you should do is when your car is having those systems . look under your hood & see if thiers water on the distributor . if there is then its most likely getting wet inside causing the problem
