This could be way off with since yours is '91, and I own a '95 and the motormanagement systems might differ, but there seems to be a way to read the check engine codes without a reader. Or at least a rough division of the codes. Turn on the ignition, leave it on but don't crank yet. The Check Engine light comes on for a couple of seconds, then goes off again. Than it comes back and blinks a couple of times. The amount of blinks it makes should give you a indication of what caused it. 6 blinks indicates in my car that the problem is in the O2/exhaust system, ergo lambda sond. I don't know what the other blink codes are, if somebody knows I'd be interested to hear. Good luck, Nel
