Question about 1985 Ford Thunderbird
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.
