The MASS Air Flow sensor can certainly cause a problem if it's not functioning properly, but you should connect it, then run engine diagnostics to see what the COMPUTER says is wrong. Here are a couple prices for a MAF sensor for a 92 Lincoln Town Car, don't know if it's the same model as yours.

Most likely its not your mass air flow sensor its gonna be your tp sensor (throttle position) or your down stream oxygen sensor because a MAF sensor controls your ITS or Ideal temp sensor witch can affect your accel and your idle when under a load but when its at rest or idle it will be affected by a tp sensor of O2 sensor they call the O2 sensor the spark plug that never gets changed..

TPS or idle air. ------------ ECT is a far more likely cause of cold running problems which stands for the Engine Coolant Temperature sensor. Also check the IAT or Idle Air Temerature sensor. A scan would be the best course of action at this point if you suspect a sensor problem.
