2000 integra dies like it's being shut off

Yesterday, I drove my car to the store and it died twice. Once at a light and again while I was going 40mph.
I got it home and then it would crank but not turn over.
When it dies it doesn't make any noises and sounds as if I just shut it off.
I checked all of the wires to make sure they weren't loose and checked for fuel and it is coming out.
I checked the spark plug wires and there is no spark.
I changed the distributor cap and that helped for most of the day but it is now back to dying shortly after it's started.
There are no codes to read to help diagnose this.

Would changing the igniter or the main really help with an issue like this?

First, please see above where I bolded your text. The term "turning over" means that the car cranks. It has nothing to do with the vehicle actually starting

Where did you check for fuel that it's "coming out"?
How did you check for spark?

Sounds like it might be your ignition switch. I'm only saying that because of it shutting off while you are driving. or maybe your main relay.

I thought main relay is usually fuel issues but it is possible. Sounds like igniter but with my experience in changing out distributor components its best to buy a remanufactured and save some time. It got to the point with mine that the bearing went out and even though you can get them I was tired of tearing it apart and dealing with cracked wires from oil/bad seals.
