Default Can anyone help with these error codes?

I have a 92 SL-2 with 215k on it.

The car was sitting for about one year before I got my hands on it. It drives fine except for these two problems: 1) car lurches while in gear and driving at about 2500rpm and 2)SES light comes on while car is warmed up and rpms exceed 2500 to 3000rpms, after letting up on the gas the light always goes off.

Had the error codes read at a shop today, and the codes are supposedly the following: 32 - EGR system, 26 - GDM failure, 53 - info flag ECS exceeded max value.

Also was told that the brain needs to be replaced. Any help would be appreciated.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Quickie shotgun method;

1-Replace the two-wire coolant sensor with the brass one if it wasn't done. Use the Forum Jump below to find the How-to-library.
2-Pull the spark plugs and either clean and re-gap them or replace them. Use only copper plugs, absolutely no platinums.
3-Remove and clean the ignition coils and module to remove all corrosion including the mounting bolts.
4-Make a temporary blocking gasket from two quarters, sheet metal or soda can to fit underneath the egr valve with the valve holding things in place. No egr valve interference if its faulty while things are sorted out. Soda cans (aluminum) will eventually melt if left in place more than a few days.
5-Remove the front O2 sensor for an alternate exhaust path if the catalytic converter is choking off exhaust flow. This one act may suddenly restore engine power as others have found. If so, replace the catcon. The exhaust will be LOUD doing this.

There's probably nothing wrong with the pcm. Using this is an excuse to stall for an answer that can't be answered when the person recommending it doesn't know engine computer systems, electronic fuel injection (EFI).

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
