How do I read the "check engine" codes on a 1994 loyale? Are there any wires I can hook together like I can do on my Legacy?

On mine, remove plastic trim panel just above your shins as you're seated in the driver's seat. This exposes a silver (aluminum box). This is your engine control module (ECM). On the face of the box, you will see an inconspicuous hole. In that hole is a little blinking red light.
Now open the hood. On or near the firewall at the upper right hand side near your brake master cylinder, you will see a number of unplugged electrical connectors. Plug together the two green ones.
Start the car. Examine the blinking light. It blinks like morse code. Long and short blinks. 5 steady shorts means you do indeed drive a Loyale with a standard tranny (7 is an automatic). After that, see if you note a pattern. Long blinks count for ten, shorts for one.
So, for example, if you note LONG LONG LONG SHORT SHORT SHORT SHORT, that's a trouble code 34 - EGR Solenoid on the fritz. The codes are all listed in starting on page 6-12 of the Haynes. Drop $15 for the book, it'll help you.
