96 SI problems

Hey guys my name's joe. I bought a 96 prelude si it drove fine for a month. Now it will intermittently start and will stall while driving. Only two codes engine knock and an o2 sensor. I'm buying a main relay tomorrow. It also backfires while I'm driving when I plugged it up while running and ignition time was 15.9. A little confused maybe the distributor but if it was that wouldn't it not work all together any advice is greatly appreciated thanks in advance.

Re: 96 SI problems

Ok guys update didn't get the main. The day I posted this thread the car ran from 4:00 to 7:00 a/c on and off. It didn't stall sputter ran perfect had the relay out pressing on to maybe get it stall I could hear it click on and off. Oh yeah I also looked at the solder elbows didn't see any cracks but it did smell a little burnt. Maybe there is oil getting in the distributor losing spark or just making it weak I have a check engine light but the bulb is burned out. Either way still same codes.



UPDATE
So I decided against the main relay and have a distributor coming tomorrow. I oped the distributor cap and it has oil in it so I'm going to replace it. But I have a felling that this will not fix my problem the reason being is that it won't start so I cycle the key 5 or 6 times and she cranks up. That doesn't always work so maybe dumb luck but I do hear the fuel pump priming so maybe the filter. LOST COMPLETELY LOST (FEEL FREE TO TAKE A POKE CANT HURT)

Still waiting for the distributor but I'll have it tonight. How often do the fuel filters go out?
