      You have to remove the air pump, combi valve from head and plug the hole in the head with this http://store.42draftdesigns.co....html Than remove the vaccum related stuff and put electrical tape over cel light on dash

      Your car is an OBD1 its actually a '95.

      Meaning you have no air pump

      95's have an air pump, they all do from 93+.

      You can plug the hole in the head with a 3/4" freeze plug (available at your local auto place for $2). Leave the solenoid plugged in and dangling so you don't trigger a CEL.
