misfiring is generaly caused by worn-out spark-plugs,spark plug wires and distributor cap and rotor. I think your car is due for a tune_up ;-)

I have the same problem in my b16, i took a look at the coil and it had a crack in it... take apart your distributor and check that. Older honds had a problem with the ignitors as well, and ive checked around i havent found any other parts that you can mix and match from other distributors not even the b16a2. Also check the fuel filter if its plugged. Does your misfire go away when you give it full throttle?
