It could be many things....

Let's start by asking....Do you feel any change in the car's performance....any shaking? feeling like it's going to shut off or stall?
Any problems with brakes(spongy brakes, feels like the pedal won't depress all the way)? etc... Describe any symptoms.

What year is your bird. Unless I'm mistaken some OBD1 systems will blink a certein number of time for a certein code. That way you don't need a code reader to determine what's wrong. If you got a haynes or chiltion manual it can explain this to you better then me.

If you don't have a manual I'd check one out at the library, it'll take this in to better detail. You do have a OBD-1 so it would seem that you can read codes like I sayed earilyer.
