    code 15 pretty much translates into bad distributor so replace it and check for bare wires on the engine harness and ECU. and SEARCH I have posted my findings on code 15 before, I had the same problem

    i forgot to add that when i put my new cap on the car ran fine then led back to my prob. then i installed a rotor problem quit but came back i then installed a coil quit for 2dayz and started right back but got even worse..2 of these only took acouple of hours to come back..so im guessin the dist. is tryin to eat my shit up and tellin me its fucked..

    Im not sure if its the same with civics but find the fuel filter adn hook a fuel pressure gauge to it compare your readings with the ones in your service manual...

    whats the distributor out of? if its out of an integra get one for that.... you get parts for the engine not the car after you do a motor swap... with exceptions.

    you need the b16 dist the ignitors should be the same in the obd 0 to 0bd1.

    But in all honesty just get a new cap and try it first
