ok just got another 88 prelude s, has new fuel pump, coil, wires, plugs, rotor button, cap, and replaced some vacuum lines. when the car is cold it has no problem starting and running, but after it gets to running temperature it starts to stumble and fall on its face and wont start again till it cools back down

checked choke

the choke is working fine. i started to take the plug wires off while it was running to see if the idle roughened, on number 1 and 2 there was no real change but i took out 3 and 4 and the idle roughened. im assuming 1 and 2 are firing weak. does neone have ne idea what would causee that

Do a compression check. Make sure that you are not getting blow by on the rings.

did you gap the plugs when you put them in and made sure the wires were on tight
Just a thought
