My daughter has a 96' as well so I found out that the camshaft sensors
wires were bad. If you have the 2.0 DOHC then take off air intake tube
(from the throttle body to the filter). Follow the wire from the coils pak
to the back end of the head it is right their. It might be that its has oil
shorting out the sigal to the PCM. Just a suggestion may or may not work
good luck. You are going to need it with this car!!!
