You can go to Autozone and they will do a scan for you (usually for free) to get the codes. Unfortunately there isn't a way to read the codes without hooking it up to a machine that can read the codes.

Poition of o b d socket, 1989 lebaron convertable cheers baz

Your '89 has no OBD plug in. To retrieve codes, turn key on, off, on, off, on, off, and then leave on. (Cycle key 3 times on-off, then leave in ON, do not start engine.) Codes will begin to flash on the check engine light (cel). All codes are only 2 digits. Probably see a code 12-one long flash and two short flashes-code 12 is normal, disregard it. If you have to, keep repeating the codes until you get them all. Post them here, or google the codes for help.

Service engine light cme on and now engine cuts out and almost stalls, I could not drove home above 30mph

to start with you need to have someone retrieve the trouble codes from the on-board computer system, any time the service engine light comes on the on-board computer system will store a trouble code. most auto parts stores can retrieve the codes for you, after you get the codes get back with me and i will look them up for you and try to lead you down the proper path to repairing your car.

no were in your question did you say if you had checked for codes in the computer. check this now it may help find the problem. this should have been done in the first place and you wouldn`t have spent all that money on none required parts. it could even be the computer gone bad.

Poor engine power on takeoff

Your car is a 93 so its OBD1, 96 and newer are OBD2 so you can call your local autozone and see if they can read obd1 because most of them just read obd2 . If they do then they can hook a code reader to your car and retrieve all the codes for free! it beats any shops price for diagnostics.Thats a good place to start hope this helps and god bless.

1995 cutlass ciera trouble codes

According to the book, it is OBD 1. Most of the autopart places do not have the correct equipment to hook up to this car. You will have to find a garage that has the correct equipment. I found a tire place locally that had the correct equipment, and got a code in seconds.
