Default 1986 Honda Accord LX will stall while driving and will not restart until the engine cools down?

When I am driving and the car warms up it will stall and will not restart until it cools for an hour or so. I noticed that the distributer block is really hot when it shuts off. Is this what is causing the problem or is there anything else?

Check the thermostat . It sounds like its not opening witch will cause the engine to over heat and cause the computer to shut the engine down so you dont destroy it.

your problem may be your coolant. once it hits a certain temp. the engine may shut itself off. not sure if it is the problem, but it may be. my dump truck did the same thing. when the engine starts to heat up, check the hoses comin in and out of the radiator to see if they are the same temp. see if the coolant is flowin through the system
