Default 93 Civic Intermitant starting Problem

Hello, I am looking for some help. My daughter has a '93 Civic DX with close to 200K on it. (Not original engine) When I am around it starts and runs fine so I am having trouble diagnosing this. Occasionally, mostly when she stops to get gas, the car won't start when she gets back in. The starter cranks the engine and it tries to start for a second but shuts back down. After about 5 minutes it starts up and runs fine again. The other night it actually shut down while she was driving and would not re start for about 30 minutes. I have been pouring over these forums and decided it sounded like the main relay. I changed that yesterday and today she had the problem at the gas station again. I have checked the main control unit for error codes and found none.(The check engine light stays on steady with the test port jumpered) I did find a while back that someone did not tighten the small screw that holds the rotor on and it was flopping around inside the distributor cap. I replaced all that but we still have this starting problem. If anyone has any ideas it would be most appreciated.
