Assuming you have an SE? There were no SS'*.

For a car with 190,000 on the ticker, it sounds like you're fixing all the normal items the previous owners overlooked.

For your problem, I'd suspect a clogged catalytic converter. However, I think a hot and cold fuel pressure check may be in your near future.

Next time you have been having this problem, especially at night, take a quick look under the car. If the cat is clogged or if it has failed, it might get hot enough to glow. If so, you can be pretty confident that is your problem. In the meantime, check your fuel pressure. You can pick up a gauge set at any parts store for $20 or less.
