I know it's hard. I had a older car with the obd1. If you search the Internet you can actually use a wire and jump the plug and read the flashes and that will tell you your code you can look up.

reading the codes arent that hard. i dont remember the procedure, but its probably in the stickies section. it only takes a few minutes to check. also i have seen guys pick up obd1 scanners for around 25$ if you dont wanna mess with a jumper wire. this would be way better than guessing.

but also it never hurts to clean the tb.

AutoZone sells em for around $30 or less I believe. Obd1 scanners are a pain in the *** cause you gotta keep track of beeps and tones. Not too fun to be quite honest.
