I think you should take it over to a shop so they can use the diagnostics tool to read the CEL and tell you EXACTLY what is going on. It could be a number of things such as:
1: bad alternator
2: bad distributor/wires/plugs or something to do with ignition
3: loose electrical connection somewhere, or a short

I suggest take it to a shop or auto-parts place /w a diagnostics CEL reader.

^ yup just take it there and tell them you have a 92 ... but i think you can check it your self with a paper clip .. you just have to find the service port on the engine and jump pins (or holes) te1 and e1 there should be a picture where you open it on the engine.
