If you changed plugs lately I would make sure I didnt get A couple plug wires crossed. But also if it has a pcv valve I know if the hose running from it can also cause this if it is cracked or dry rotted leaking air, or you could have another vacume hose leaging it will do both of thous things.

Your Ford tempo 1990 runs fine for about 5 miles then wont go anywhere it has fluid no sound why?
