Unhappy honda del sol keeps cutting out!!! help needed.


Hi, i own a 1993 Honda del sol 1.5 VTEC automatic. ive owned the car for over 7 years and never had a problem with it, but, annoyingly it has developed a very frustrating problem that i cannot seem to find how to cure!.

I start the car, and drive away, and can drive between 10 and 30 miles when suddenly the car will cut out, and the "check engine" light will come on. I have to coast to the side of the road, and turn the key to start the car again, but it will either start and cut out straight away, or not start again until i sit and wait for about 10 mins, then turn the key and it either will start and die or start and then let me drive about 500 yds before cutting out again. Then, after waiting another 10 mins, it will let me start the engine again and drive on without fault for 10 to 30 miles! ive changed the fuel filter, even changed the main relay because i read that this could be the problem, but still the car cuts out as before. I am totally lost as to what to do next! I live in a small village and need my car every day, so any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
