... I had a similar problem on the 5kCSQA I bought ... actually got a couple
hundred off the asking price because of it ... assuming that you 90 has a
CIS system rather than EFI (Motronic) I'd think that they would work the
same.  What I found was that the variable resistor that reported the
position of the airflow sensor had opened up.  I used some carburetor
cleaner followed by a spray of DeoxIt and got the fuel economy parameters to
work.  On my car the thing is buried under the fender, but I was able to get
access by removing the lower airbox and air filter ...
