There's multiple possibilities. Some of them are a partially clogged fuel filter, poor fuel pressure, a bad sensor or sensors, etc...
Have you checked/changed the filter? What's the fuel pressure?
You can access a simplified version of the trouble codes on this model - with the car off, turn the ignition switch on, off, on, off, and on again relatively quickly. The check engine light will blink out the codes. An example would be blink, pause, blink, blink. This would be code 12. Chilton's or Haynes books give you the code's meaning (that code means battery disconnect). These can at least give you a place to start.

    the code read 32 ... egr system failure
    not sure how to address that ??
    thanks for any pointers or help

    Then it could be the EGR valve is plugged, not getting good vacuum, etc. On a '96, my Chilton's book says the EGR valve is under the air intake duct on either the SOHC or the DOHC motors.
    They can be cleaned (usually carbon build-up), and vacuum-tested. If it fails any of the tests, it'll need replaced. It also says that, if the EGR valve is replaced, there's another item, the EGR transducer, attached to the air inlet duct, that will need replaced, too, because they're calibrated together.

    I'm not sure how handy you are with car repairs, or how much you have in the way of tools, so this may be something you want to take to a reliable repair shop.

It's most likely your throttle. Your fuel pedal is electronic and these will wear out. If you watch this problem you will see it happens at a certain RPM range.

Lumina Starting/Dying Problem

this could be one of the two things that I am thinking it is either the throttle position sensor or it si the fuel pump getting too hot and cooling off slightly enough to restart the engine. Both are related but separate systems. The throttle position sensor is on the side of the throttle body and it merely tells the computer where the throttle plate is in the throttle body to create the proper fuel mixture for the injectors. The fule pump ios loccated insid eof the fuel tank it either runs or it doesnt usually. If it gets hot it is about to go completely out all together.
