its a 1.5 L single port engine. car starts fine but when I try to accelerate, it starts to accelerate, then it starts stumbling and running real*rough and wont go any faster. check engine lite has come on.

Trying to avoid a shop diagnostic charge on this.

thanx

on a 88 you can jump wire the ecu and read codes without a scanner.
there is a blue connector hanging near the ac blower inside the cabin by the passenger kick panel, if memory serves me well it has a brown cable and black try looking it up on you tube im sure someone has posted it.
once its jumped with paper clip turn ign. switch to acc. DO NOT START THE CAR( not screaming at you) the check engine light will begin to flash. a slow flash are tens and fast flashes are single units
so a slow flash and 2 fast flashes are code 12.
make the distinction between fast flashes and short quick ones. on line you will find what codes = to numbers and sensors. sorry but I don't have them around.
