Check for vacuum leaks.

CAN THE COOLANT TEMP SENSOR TELL THE COMPUTER THE ENGINE IS WARMED UP BECAUSE THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT WILL TURN ON RIGHT WHEN THE IDLE DROPS

95 should be an OBD2 system. Most parts stores will do it for free.

This is an OBD1 system and you are going to need a professional scan tool for this one.
