97 CRV engine dies while underway

A half-dozen times now, the car has simply died while underway--no stumbling, no misfiring, just dead. It restarts immediately once I pull over and stop. Suggestions made so far include faulty igntion switch, main relay, and the distributor assembly, but no diagnostic work has shown anything. Thoughts, related experiences?

have your distributor checked or should i say the ignition control module when the icm goes bad it tends to shut the car off when it gets hot it is located in the distributor and can be replaced but not by the average DIY i suggest taking it off then going to your nearest autozone and tell them to check the icm its internally mounted in your distributor. i had same exact prob but when i was driving down the street it would shut off then when i let it cool down it would start right back up
