code 42 is a malfunctioning EST or electronic spark timing, could be a bad circut or just the distributor

Here is the trouble tree for that code. As you will see it could be the module, wiring, or the ECM. Korey
Well for some reason it will not load on this post.

*combined consecutive posts*

Here I will try again. Korey

I have no info for a '93 but I found this on the internet. I hope it helps a little.

I just re-read the article and it looks like the hardest part of the job is removing the distributor cap. You also need a test light and I recommend an LED test light.
