Does my 1996 honda accord have a vehicle speed sensor

most old cars have a speedo cable.
is the odometer dead too. (we need that answer now)

there are 3 class evolutionary systems.
electric sender to cluster
and sender to PCM and PCM drives cluster.
but honda does this on diffr, dates than most cars. (i learned)

so lets do that. we login to and look , so can you at any time,
once a month i do random cars.
what engine, sometimes this varies by engine, and trans.
neither stated so Ill toss coin each time.
a/t trans.
has electronic (hall) speed sensor VSS and runs
engine, cruise. odometer and cluster.

the 96 has no speedo cable, and works in modern mode, very advance for this time
also any scan tool on earth fits the PCM scan port
and if VSS is dead, it tells you that with a DTC , vss dead.
saving all that work wondering why it dont work.
PCM must see it work
and cluster
and cruise
if only cluster fails, and both speedo and odometer then its bad.
if only speedo fails but not odometer , then speedo meter is bad.
its that easy.

2001 civic with 50, miles will not stay in fith gear. All other gears hold well.

Honda did have a problem with some of their 5 speed manuals. 5th gear bounces out after you have shifted or when you accelerate ?
Either the snchros are bad and are not allowing the gears to seat, or a gear is bad.
You will have to find a qualified reliable auto center to do the repairs.
Please let me know what you find.

1998 civic speedo broke

More likely to be the speedo drive in the transmission or a faulty speed sensor that is electronic i would be guessing here as 98 was the change over year for civic so it depends which transmission is fitted. Don't rip the dash to pieces just yet as i'm guessing this will just create more trouble. Steve Baldam in the UK

1998 Honda Civic engine replaced with engine H15B is it the right one

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.

Your transmission fluid contain water,thats why the colour of the fluid changed to pink.And of such the clutch is slipping causing the engine to reve up before shifting - Check transmission cooler.
