    If the check engine light is on, clues as to the cause of your problem are present. You really need to have a proper diagnosis performed on this vehicle, especially with its age and primitive (by today's standards) processor capabilities. Can be air flow or barometric pressure related, could be a vacuum leak, could be several things...
