Your ignition and fuel systems have stored fault codes when these issues arise.
Sometimes you can tell the code in this manner.
Turn the key to on, then off, on, off, on again and watch the check engine light. All within 5 seconds, it can be repeated over and over.
It ends with a 5 and a 5. These nubers help a technician find a starting point to his diagnostic procedures. A single flash followed by three quick flashes would be a code 13, it is a map sensor, I used this as an example. Hope it helps, as the key codes were fairly accurate for hard codes in 92.
