    Hi all i have a confusing problem, my Civic hesitates / sputters during gear change 2 to 3rd is horrible its a bit juddery and when i naturally de-accelerate (with no breaks) the re-accelerate it judders / hesitates / spluuers its begining to really anoy me...

    The problem hapens after 10 - 15mins of driving, its fine when cold drive spot on but when warmed up it drives me insane..

    Do you think it may be timing, spark plugs, dizzy ?? not sure...

    i have this problem to,my mate said he had it with his car(not a Civic) and it was to do with the fuelling after he uprated stuff and said he fixed it when he changed the fuel filter,but he also got it remapped around the same time so that could be it,ill ask him more when i can. maybe fuel filter or something though?? but you said it only happens after 10-15 mins im not so sure...basically dpfi is ghay

    The dizzy ignition control module is a known issue, i generally put any issues with the D15B2 down as it being a wanky DPFi hoe bag of an engine.

    but then again

    my d15b2 did it too,

    and it is just because they're wank and have 1 fuel injector LOL

    give it a service, or at the very least fuel filter and plugs

    Technically 2, hence Dual Point Fuel Injection. A friend had a this problem with his car, It started after he fitted his long arm intake to his b2. Also check someone hasn't taken the metal plate out of the little airbox thing, that makes the B2 splutter.
