There was a recall on the 93's for a similar issue and a tempature sensor replacement was the solution. Check for recalls as well

Ohhhhhh, sometimes folks get in a hurry changing belts and disconnect the crank sensor. Its sow by the crankshaft pully. It's a plug that came apart.

It could be that you have picked up a batch of dirty fuel that has clogged the gauze input filter that is part of the fuel pump inside the fuel tank.
You will need to remove the pump assembly from the tank. Access to it is usually through a removable plate in the floor under the back seat. Once you have the pump assembly out allow the gauze filter to dry. You can assess the amount of clogging by shining a torch through the gauze and see how much light comes through. Clean it by brushing with an old tooth brush and blowing clean with compressed air. If there is a lot of dirt/rust in the tank, try draining it. You may have to repeat the cleaning process again in few months if the symptoms appear again.
