Sad "Service Engine Soon" Analysis

I know there have been a few posts on this topic...but my problem seems to be a bit different, i have a '93 SL1, and after i've driven for a while (30-40 minutes) the SES light comes on followed by the throttle missing, then the exhaust gets louder almost as if struggling for air. This lasts for about 5 minutes, then the light goes off and the car sounds and acts normal. could it be a MAP sensor? any suggestions? thanks

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

You might want to check the codes to see why the "Service Engine Soon" light is coming on.

You can get the codes yourself, just do what the links says.

This pretty much tells what code 26 is all about:

If you need any more help. Just ask.
