Sounds like you're likely getting a misfire, possibly due to old spark plug wires or a fuel delivery issue. I recommend that you do a major tune-up on the vehicle, to include new spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor, rotor, and ignition coil, and fuel filter. Once you have completed the major tune-up, (if carbureted) rebuild the carburetor and verify proper operation of the fuel pump (or if fuel injected) verify sufficient fuel pressure at the fuel rail and replace the fuel pressure regulator and/or the fuel pump if necessary.
Also, if your vehicle is equipped with an EGR, verify that the EGR is operating properly (as the EGR opens at 40 m.p.h. when the engine is warm, and if it is malfunctioning may be causing an issue).

Check for spark. Take a plug wire off a spark plug leaving the other end still attached to coil pack/distributer. Stick a screwdriver in the end. Holding the handle of the screwdriver keep the metal part a couple Millimetres off a section of metal while you get some one to turn it over. If it is really sunny it will be hard to see the spark. Do this one plug at at time so you don't get the wires mixed up.

This is the same as the check engine light, but specifically for the transmission. So it indicates there is a fault code stored for the trans, and you can have it read out to see what is the problem.

the cap has no setting
oops you mean you pulled off all the wires and not 1 by 1,
and scrambled the firing order, ooops.

but i can help you because you didnt name the exact engine in car.
no one can,.
86 is old car. skip diesel. so 4 engines.

1.8 L I4 gasoline (1S-L,-LU)
1.8 L I4 gasoline (1S-iLU)
2.0 L I4 gasoline (2S-EL,-ELC,-ELU)
2.0 L I4 gasoline (3S-GELU)
1.8 L I4 diesel turbo (1C-TL,-TLC)
2.0 L I4 diesel turbo (2C-TL,-TLC)

or log in to alldata.com and see the 2 engines and dizzy caps
and where #1 cap rotor location is, and what direction rotor turns
the latter is easy look while cranking.

for me, i just set the crank to #1 firing mark, AND all intake valves closed. (4 ways to do that) and take off the CAP
bingo #1 is THERE.
then lay them down 1,3,4,2 order
in the natural rotation order (crank it to see)
bam your running.

this works on all dizzy cars only firing order and rotation direction changes, among engines..

best bet would be to drop the tank and clean it out
they tend to get rust inside the tank when they sit this long if you decide to drop the tank and find rust inside take a 3 ft piece of heavy chain and shake it around inside the tank to loosen all the rust and clean the rust out really well before putting the tank back in

That will be the anti theft device working then. Try using the drain bolt on the fuel tank.

It's in the fuse panel next to the battery. They use the EFI relay. Pull the relay and check for power. It probably works but you can switch it with one of the (fan I think) relays that is the same.

There is no good way to do it. It can be done at the banjo connection on the top of the fuel filter. It is found on the drivers side of the engine compartment just below the air filter. Make sure you get a wrench on the top nut just below the banjo connect to hold the fuel filter from turning while removing the banjo bolt. Place a rag over the fitting to keep gas from spraying all over and something to catch the drips. Once loose you can jumper the B+ terminal with the Fp terminal in the diagnostic connector. Then turn the ignition to the on position and the fuel pump will start running with out starting the car. You may need new copper washers to reseal the banjo connection.
