i also have a 93 thunderbird that had the same problem. you should first check the oil and see if it is a milky brown color kind of like chocalate milk if it looks like that u have a blown head gasket. If your oil looks clean like mine was then i recomend changing the fuel pump and fuel filter. After i changed my pump and filter my car ran like it was new.
