Why would a 1989 Ford Tempo FWD sputter when idling more than a minute or speeding up and almost die when stopping?

A malfunctioning battery can't provide enough power to your ignition system when the motor is idling can cause sputtering. If there is not enough gas, that can cause your vehicle to sputter. If the spark plugs fail to fire will also cause your vehicle to sputter.

It could be that your car is idling to low, the throttle position sensor can be bad
