If you are handy with a soldering iron, and these directions make sense 
to you then:

There is one small tantalum capacitor in the amp. Replace it. If that 
cures the problem then you are probably good to go. If the two biggest 
electrolytic caps show signs of leaking, replace them too. You have to 
be careful to get the correct physical size as well as correct 
electrical ratings. In my case - which sounds just like yours, the 
problem was the tantalum cap only.

If you just want to buy a factory rebuild, I believe someone just got 
them for around $70 each - and they came with a lifetime warranty.

... only 70K miles on a '91? has the timing belt been replaced?
