SOURCE: 85 ford tbird will start fine but then will dies.

I had an 84 Bird. There were 2 places to set the idle. If someone has worked on it or if the first setting fails, it can give you that problem. Check for a loose vacuum line going to a carburetor part. Sometimes putting in a new air filter will cause the vacuum line to fall off.

The next thing to check is an EGR valve that is not closing. This will cause the engine to stall at idle.

Finally, if you need a diagnosis the Autozone or O'reilly auto parts people will scan your car for free. They may be able to sell you a part you can put on yourself to solve the problem.
Good Luck

M5r2 ford thunderbird sc trans bad in reverse!

Rebuild or replace your transmission. Don't fall for any "quick fix" stories. I've been at this professionally for over 20 years and I'm here to tell you, there is no magic cure for reverse being gone. By the way, T'Bird SC is quite the car, worked on quite a few (and driven) - nice!
