Wink 86 Mazda 626 stalls

I have an 86 Mazda 626. It recently started stalling while driving. It seems to just loose power then dies. Could it be the ignition? Where can I get the code reader for this car? It has the Normally Aspirated Engine. Not Turbo. Thanks for any help.

If there's an Auto Zone near you see if they can read your codes. An '86 Mazda is pretty ancient, but they may be able to read it.

Two things I would check right off the bat: clogged fuel filter (just replace it) or clogged exhaust/catalytic converter. Either one is capable of giving you these symptoms and could be likely candidates considering the age of the vehicle.
