If it's typically doing this when warm, spray cold water on your coil packs and try it. If it cranks and won't start warm, but does after cooling down the coils than that's your problem. CPS can also do goofy things. Unfortunately, checking for tach bounce while cranking does not work on these since the pick-up is in the alternator. I can't remember, but I think the check engine light will go off while cranking if the cps is bad. It's not a bad job to change out and probably a good thing to change out anyway at your mileage. I just replaced the one in my 96, took maybe 15 minutes. It's just above the oil pan on the driver's side (LHD) facing rearward into the bell housing under a cover. Two 7mm screws. It is possible to remove it with a 1/4 drive ratchet and short extension and just clear the exhuast downpipe.
