The only H15B I can find on the internet is a Japanese made piece of construction equipment. The proper motor for your civic would be:
KA4AT - 4 cylinder Auto transmission, 49 states.
KL4AT - 4 cylinder Auto Trans. California
KA5MT - 4 Cylinder 5 speed manual trans 49 states
KL5MT - 4 cylinder 5 speed manual trans. California.
The CA versions have more stringent emission standards than the other 49 states. The Honda engine #'s I've listed are stamped on the engine block. As u face the engine compartment standing in front of the car, the # should be next to a rubber plug (square shape) that is removed to time the engine, so look there for some ID.

Check engine light on and was reading a p0505 code drove to the store and engine like started blinking got home hooked the code reader and now have another code of p0309 and p1399


Code 505 is a problem with the idle air control valve.
Code 309 is noting a cylinder 9 missfire on engines with 10 cylinders which would not include yours. That may be a fluke or not the right number.
Code p1399 is brand specific and for Honda it usually means random miss.
The code 505 could be the idle control valve or a vac leak. The computer can not control idle speed by using the valve.
The miss codes mean the cylinders are not producing power when they should be. Which may or may not be ignition. It could also be fuel or mechanical problems.
If you have not replaced the plugs and done the usual maintenance stuff in the past year or two, I would start with the basics.
Be sure and look at the inside of the dist cap and rotor.

The check engine light is on on my 1998 Honda Civic DX, does it merely need to be reset using a code or is there something else. O2 sensor was replaced right before I bought the vehicle


The check engine light (yellow light) comes only when the computer control unit (called the PCM) senses a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system u will seldom feel the car engine run any different, there are about 200 possible faults that turn the light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.

Does my Civic have a timing chain or a timing belt


It has a timing belt. Recommended to be replace every 105,000 miles, timing belt also run's your water pump good idea to also replace, your engine is also an INTERFERENCE ENGINE which will damage your cylinder head valve's if timing belt goes bad. Hope this was very helpful.

How to remove and install new oxgen sensors on a


Stop by your local auto parts store and ask how many oxygen sensors the Honda Civic has installed. They are usually installed on the exhaust pipe before the catalytic convertor, and screw off with an open-end wrench. The heat causes the sensor to be a bit difficult to remove, and you will need to put some anti-seize compound on the threads of the new sensors. Most cars have 2 or 3 oxygen sensors.

Your local AutoZone can also put the diagnostic computer on you car which should indicate whether its actually a bad oxygen sensor, or they will read the error codes to tell you what the problem really is. Best of all, it's FREE.

1998 Prelude VTEC P1361 code, what's the most likely failure.


Need a clear question and better info. However, based on the little that was posted...

Code P1361 is ignition coil circuit low. You'll have to do some electrical troubleshooting to locate the cause.

Low oil will also can also result in the oil pressure sending unit cutting power to fuel pump relay. This is done to prevent engine damage due to low oil.

Starting problem with honda civic


Next things to check are fuel and spark, remove a spark plug and with the wire attached crank the motor, if you see spark in the plug then it's not a spark issue and probably a fuel problem. If there is no spark could be bad plugs or wires, or distrubitor cap. To check fuel remove injector cover and crank motor, if there is no fuel coming out then check fuel filter, fuel pump.

Good Luck
