Question 1989 Honda Accord shuts off

1989 Honda Accord 4 cylinder automatic with AC.
The car will on occasion shut off like you turned off the key. No hesitation, missing etc. If you coast to a stop and then it will re start and be fine. So far it has only done it on the highway after driving 5 miles or more.

Trouble shooting ideas plaese. Ignitior or coil problem???

Or fuel filter/fuel pump. If you can't remember the last time you changed the fuel filter, I would do that before anything else. Even if it's not the problem, it's good preventive maintenance anyway.

There is a power relay under the dash above your left foot. When it quits, can you really quick check for spark?? I've ran into a couple that fail when warm & start to work again after they cool for 1 or 2 mins. Usually you will have spark, but no injector pulse or fuel pump. May be tricky to pinpoint
