Get a reader and see what code it is throwing.
Not much to tell you unless you do that.

yeah its your o2 sensor..

just pull the pass. kick panel off, jump the blue 2 pin connector and count the flashes.

its probably distributor or something else spark related. but yeah check how many flashes you are getting and then check the code online somewhere. Ex: 16 is injector etc.. but its most likely your secondary o2 sensor between the muffler and resonator. (jk lol)
