1993 Toyota Camry 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 222k miles

My Camry wagon idles fine, but suffers from sluggish acceleration. When it's sunny outside, the CEL will come on within minutes and the acceleration problem becomes much worse. If I warm up the car while stationary on a cool night, the car drives slightly better and the CEL will not always come on. I've got new plugs, wires, dist cap and rotor, fuel pressure reg, and fuel filter. I'm guessing this could be the EGR, MAP, MAF, or TPS, but I'm hoping you could narrow it down for me with "CEL when sunny" clue. Thank you!

Hi mbridges2,

Thank you for the donation.

When the CEL shows an error has been detected and it is necessary to retrieve the code to understand the problem.

You can get a free scan done at your local Autozone parts to retrieve the code. Let me know the exact code and we shall start from there.

Without the code it is impossible to know which component or system circuit is malfunctioning.
