This problem started as stalling. Now it wont start at all. It would start if I pumped the accelerator but now that doesn't work. The fuel pressure is at 35 - 40 lbs.
The car just started after it cooled off but stalled after a short while.
Is there a way to get the codes off of a '93 auto?
Do you

Check for spark
check IAC valve remove clean or replace
check injector pulse

READING CODES
KOEO & KOER SELF-TEST Codes
PCM outputs codes one digit at a time.
Record codes in order received.
These codes indicate current faults in system and should be serviced in order of appearance.
If using VOM, pay careful attention to length of pauses in order to read codes correctly.
A 1/2-second pause occurs between number of sweeps in a digit.
A 2-second pause occurs between digits in a code.
A 4-second pause occurs between each code.
KOEO codes are separated from Continuous Memory codes by a 6-second delay, a 1/2-second sweep (separator) and another 6-second delay.
If using MIL/CHECK ENGINE light, service codes are displayed as flashes.
On Continental, message center may be used to display codes.
Scan tester, if used, will count pulses and display them as a digital code.
STAR Series Tester will add a zero (0) to single-digit Separator Code (10) and Dynamic Response Code (10). Dynamic Response Code is displayed in KOER SELF-TEST.
Separator Pulse
Single 1/2-second separator pulse is issued 6-9 seconds after last KOEO code. Continuous Memory Codes (soft faults) are then displayed 6-9 seconds after 1/2-second separator pulse. Some digital test equipment may display separator code as "10" instead of "1".

Thank you for the reply! I do not understand the instructions for retrieving the codes. I am a rank ameteur and do not understand the acronyms you gave me. One of the videos on this sight said cars made after '95 have systems that allow code reading. My car is a '93 Ford Taurus.
Thanks!

1995 and before
Diagnostic trouble codes are retrieved from EEC-IV system through Data Link Connector (DLC). Various methods and test equipment may be used to access these codes:
Analog Volt-Ohmmeter (VOM)
Scan Tester
Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL)/CHECK ENGINE Light
STAR Series Tester
Message Center (Continental)

I arrived at the ignition control module from the information you gave me. I guess spending the money on a donation helped me read between the lines and find the problem on my own. That's what I'm talkin' about!
