Question about 1992 Ford Tempo
You might want to try removing air by-pass valve & cleaning it, or replacing it. If you try cleaning, get another gasket before so you can replace gasket. Once you remove it, spray inside it with throttle body spray cleaner, and also in side port where it came out of. Then re-install with new gasket, and try it. Even if it only cures it for a short time, you've found problem & then can replace with new. Some of these will clean up & work o.k. for quite a while, others are not helped at all, or for only a short time. Here's a picture of what it probably looks like on your car. It will be near front, usually on side of throttle body.

stalling issue at low speeds
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
