  1. First thing I would do is check for codes. Since this is a 1995 OBD I it can be done without a Scan-tool. And the instructions and codes can be found right here on this site: http://freeautomechanic.com/diagnostictroblecodes5.html

    Let me know what codes come up and we’ll go from there

  2. Sounds like an air leak in the hoses. check the hoses around the top part of engine toward the firewall. You should hear a hissing sound. Test the hoses. Test each one.
