Sounds like the choke isn't opening as the engine warms up. This causes an overly rich air/fuel mixture once the engine begins to warm up. HTH. -Jim

I would start by replacing your EGR valve and replacing your Air Intake / Charge Temperature Sensor. Which is pictured below.

It has a manual choke thanks but this temp sensor air intake thing looks promising thanks both of you guys

You're welcome. Glad to help. -Jim

I had no idea how complicated these little cars are sensors everywhere

Paul, do you change out the sensor yet?

no not yet but will try soon also I recently put premium gas in it that wouldn't make a difference?

No. Premium only stops spark knock in some vehicles.
