SOURCE: will start then die.
if it starts runs and dies instantly, the fuel pump could be the culprit, its getting the signal to sqirt fuel to start but then no voltage to continue pressure.. check fuel pump and also worse case senerio is the ECU (main computer could be bad)

Forget the codes,it's a 1992 obd1,not much to look at,I own one since new,18 years. Do you hear the fuel pump when turning the key on and off? If not check out the relay,put a pressure gauge on the fuel rail if you hear the pump and pull the hose of the regulator for pump pressure. Also check the pump wire harness for dirt,corrosion on top off fuel tank, and good luck gettin to that. Also check alt output,it has to drive that pump

This is how your problem is solved in my shop. Out of the box, I'd say that you have a problem with the fuel management system. However, there's a good chance that it's something simple and inexpensive like a clogged fuel filter or water in the fuel tank.
First a little background for your edification. You may be aware of all this but we've never done business before and all assumptions are off the table.
For an engine - make that any engine and irrespective of manufacturer - to run, you need three things to happen inside the engine, compression, fuel and ignition, without any one of these components the engine will not run.
If Your Engine Cranks but Does Not Start, runs rough, staggers, sags or cuts off, follow this Troubleshooting Guide. Some of these steps require a code scanner. They are costly but AutoZone will loan you one for FREE.
Most vehicles operate by the same principle; basic troubleshooting procedures apply to most cars.
The reason we repair non-related codes after the engine is running is because sometime false codes can be triggered by the engine not running. Once the engine is running again the code present might cycle and turn itself off. You might say "if the engine doesn't run shouldn't it have a trouble code?" Sometimes conditions occur that will not be detected by the computer, example: if the fuel pump fails the computer cannot detect the failure, so the engine doesn't start and the computer thinks everything is okay with no codes. If no trouble codes are present proceed to the next step.

All the best
