You need to find out what CEL is telling you. If you don't have OBDII like my 95 2.2L, get a little piece of wire and do the following:
1. Run the engine til CEL comes on
2. Short the TE1 and E1 together at the diagnostic port...do not short or touch anything else. There are 2 diag ports in a 95 without OBDII; one is in the hood on the passenger side (from the hood looking towards the back of the car, it's on the passenger side, left of the engine) - if it's the right one, the cap will have TE1, TE2, OX1,OX2, etc. It's black color and point upright. Follow which pins are TE1 and TE1. The other one is under the steering column above the pedal (gray color)....You can open the cap and find the pin out label there.
3. Once shorted, your car should rev a little higher for 5 seconds and go back to idle with "O/D off" flashing.
4. After 5 sec, your CEL will blink in code. It will keep repeating the code(s) then long pause. For an example, 72 & 51 will blink 7 times, short pause, 2 times, medium pause, 5 times, short pause, 1 time, LONG pause, then repeat again 7 times, etc.
Let us know the code....then we will have more clue as what's going on.
