On computerized cars there are sensors that tell the engine what to do.  
Check the sensors.  In some cars there is a way to read problem codes without 
hooking up to a computer.  A Haynes or Chilton manual on the car will tell 
you how to do it.

Check the oxygen sensor (which is probably bad if it hasn't been changed 
since 1989) and maybe the throttle position sensor, which can be troublesome. 
 Also bad EGR valves cause starting problems.  Do simple stuff before you 
rebuild the engine.

My 1992 Mitsubishi 1.8L engine has 173,000 miles on it and it still runs 
great.  I changed the oxygen sensor about two years ago.
