you will have to read that engine code. sounds like the computer is trying to compensate for something. Google "how to read OBD1 codes with a paper clip" you will get a simple procedure for reading the code.

mine wasn't that old sounds like o2 sensor or emission problem go to and auto parts that will read your codes for free parts. for your truck are fairly cheap so even if you have to replace a couple of sensors it won't cost a arm &a leg .iban
