    After a year you are right - probably bad gas.

    Use the "stomp test" to find problem codes.

    To read the problem codes on a 1990, use the "stomp test",,,

    One year sitting may be bad gas..

    Basically, turn on the ignition, without starting,
    rapidly press the gas pedal to the floor 5 times.

    The check engine light will flash the error codes by blinking.

    Read the archives for the codes and how to read the blinks,
    ie.1 flash pause, two flashes, pause signifies the numbers
    1 and 2. The sequence is actually 4 numbers long, if
    you get 1 4 4 4, then everything is o.k.
