2000 prelude, intermittent dying please help

I just got this car, I was driving on the interstate today and the car suddenly died. I couldn't get it to restart it would just crank and crank. My father came and towed me home, when we got home we tried starting it again, and it fired up and ran perfect for about thirty seconds then it died again. We replaced the coil, and the ignition switch, still won't start. I have class tomorrow and need my car to get me there, do y'all have any suggestions. We are going to pull and have the icm tested in the morning.

The first thing I would do is check for engine codes.
