    D15B Vtec raw gas smell from exhaust

    Does the CEL work? Sounds like you've mostly answered your own question... you have a fuel leak somewhere. Likely not from the exhaust as it wouldn't be raw fuel. Jack the car up and look for leaks.

    manual swapped ek coupe wont crank or release key.

    That might work, but I never had to do any of that with my auto to manual conversion. @thatcivickid , cut the 14P plug, splice 2 black wires and the 1 black/blue wire together. This just tricks ECU to think the car is always park and will allow you to release the key. If you still have your...

    CC Beer Thread

    I will get back to you on beers / info shortly! You do the same.... lol As for shipping, I've only done it a few times myself. Always heard to never use USPS; FedEx is recommended. Use a bunch of bubblewrap, pack things tightly, and if shipping glass just make sure the bottles aren't touching...

    Possible new to me 1995 Honda Civic EX Coupe

    How's the condition of the body? Any rust? That would sell instantly up here in NY if were rust free, lol. Honestly that seems like a pretty good deal. It sounds like you're mechanically inclined and have already identified most issues with the car. Clutch, water pump, and timing belt were done...

    Speedometer not working even after replacing sensor

    PCB joints likely need resoldering. Oven trick may fix it temporarily, but and especially if you're in a place with cold weather, might not last long. May need to swap out the PCB.

    I think you need a Y8 TB gasket IIRC. EDIT: https://www.d-series.org/forums/general-tech/2470-d16y7-d16y8.html#post18557

    What year manifold? I believe with 99-00 mani's there's an extra port you need to block off.

    Y7 to Y8 swap

    You're swapping manifolds or the the head? Y7 and Y8 fuel rails are the same IIRC, just use the proper injectors for your motor. Y7 injectors flow at 190cc, Y8 flow at 240cc

    '99 Civic won't accelerate past 50 mph

    So automatic transmission? A clogged cat would also prevent the RPM's from increasing because that exhaust gas is getting backed up. Your RPMs are increasing, so it's likely that the car is trying to switch gears and something is preventing it from doing so. I don't know automatic...

    '99 Civic won't accelerate past 50 mph

    :welcome: What engine's in the car? Mods? Automatic or manual? Does this happen when the engine is cold, at operating temp, or both? Is the check engine light on? If not, does the check engine light work? You mention that the speed will not increase but the RPM's do... can you elaborate here...
