    Can anyone diagnose?

    My '93 SL1 (120,000 miles) has a code 26 and takes about 4 minutes to
    warm up before I can drive it without it stalling or bucking. After
    that it is fine all day until the next day.

    Is this consistent with the EGR solenoid or canister purge solenoid
    problem others have found? If so, one more than the other?

    The SES light is not always on and I can't find any pattern to it
    other than it won't come on while I'm waiting for it to fully warm up
    (when ironically I'm having the problems) and seems to come on more on
    downhills than uphills.

    Thanks if anyone can help.

    I wish I could diagnose the problem because I think I have a similar

    I haven't been able to consistently see the code 26 (it comes on and
    off often) although I can't remember it turning on too soon after
    starting the car. It usually comes on for me at medium-higher speeds
    and goes out (at least briefly) while I am changing gears or slowing
    and stopping at a light.

    I am driving a '92 SL1 with 116,000 miles.

    I fixed it by changing the EGR SELENOID.
