Default 1991 Honda Accord abruptly stalls, help is appreciated!

Hello, would really appreciate some help with my 1991 Accord stalling. It has 177000 miles, and is pretty reliable/runs well. It's stalled 3 times in the last 2 weeks, about 3/4 days in between stalls. It's scary, I pull over and the car Immediately starts back up. All the dash lights come on, they go back off when I restart. The only things I've noticed is the engine seems to be running a slightly bit cooler, very minimal change though. Also one time I had a drop in rpms, from 2500 to maybe 1000, and then stalled a few minutes later. Otherwise no warning signs. Mechanic said he can't diagnose without it happening for him, he had it for a long weekend and it wouldn't stall.

When it happens, do all the dashboard warning lights come on or stay off?

If they stay off (JUST LIKE you switched off the key), then see if you can make it stall by wiggling the key. Flaky ignition switches are not unheard of in Hondas...
