I think a top end cleaning would be of value to you.

1. Remove inlet hose and clean with carb spray
2. Start car and rev up to about 2,000 rpm and feed more carb spray for a moment or two. It may not even want to run without a fight when you are doing this part.
3. With engine running, open throttle (wide open throttle) and hold hand over inlet and then take your hand away and allow it to flow again and release the throttle. Don't over rev it, you just want to create a vacuum state in the intake that will remove carbons, etc. Do this open throttle and cork it with your hand about 6-8 times. Then reassemble anything you took apart.

This trick removes stubborn gunk in the intake by loosening it with carb spray first and creating a vacuum to dislodge it. Expect a little black smoke when doing this trick.

When my lincoln town car 1993 dies when i stop do i have a serious problem?


No read the fix below.

Engine stalling issue at low speeds

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

Engine died at stop sign nows stalls out and dies when driving


If the engine stalls at idle the problem is with idle air control solenoid. You can get it replaced at 50-100 bucks.

Check all of your vacume lines. If it isn't a vacume line it is most likely the O2 sensor.

Dies when idling, does better with a/c on, but still dies


this is your problem:

Here are the most common causes of surges, stalls at stops, low erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake
