Default ignitor or distribitor problem?

i got a 91 honda accord lx coupe at 168,000 miles
sometimes, it will have problems starting up and stuff, and I will have to wait hours for it to work...
dont know why, but ive read forums and people say its the ignitor or distribitor

i want to know if there's a store or someplace to get one of these to try and fix my car
probablly a new part cause i dont really trust old parts from the junk yard and stuff

Sounds like a main relay problem.

I'm going to have to 3rd that opinion. Ignitor is like 60 bucks - that's the last thing you'd want to try, and if that went, you'd have no spark anyway. Good luck, tell us how it goes.

Take out your ignition module and take it to your AutoZone store where they have a tester that can tell you if the part is good or no good..cost you nothing but your time to get it tested there..
