Hello Vette, here is some help for you.
You can check the trouble code(s) your self here is how you do it.
This is the OBD 1 system so you locate the connector plug below the steering wheel at the bottom of the dash and with the key off get a jumper wire or paper clip and jump pin B and A, be careful not to short out any other pins or the ECM will fry. Make sure you have paper and pen so you can write down the codes.
See pics below. After the jumper is in place turn the key to the on position not start and count the check engine flashes on the dash. If this is done right you will see one flash then two flashes. This is normal code 12 You will see this three times then it will start a series of flashes like three flashes then two that is code 32 EGR it will do that three times too if the EGR is acting up. After all codes are played it will go back to code 12 and start over. After you are down turn the key off then remove jumper.
Let us know what you find.
