I have a 1986 ford tempo GL 2.3L throttle body injection vin with a X my problem is when I make a right turn my car tries to stall and when I slow down to stop then it only goes 35 up steep hills

You need to check the fuel pressure and run an EEC-IV fault code tests both the running test and the passive key on engine off test. To run the fault code test using the check engine "blink" method go to the link below. The diagnostic connector is under the hood it is a red triangle shaped connector, it may have a cover on it that is black, it just pulls out of the cover.

Where do i hook up the engine code reader on 89 ford tempo.t

The universal OBDII code reader came out in 1996 per government mandate. Before that time, OBDI was the first vehicles with computers, and every manufacture was doing their own thing and creating their own vehicle specific testers or using lights on the computer to read codes. So you will not be able to ready the codes on your pre '96 vehicle. You would have to take it to a shop that has the special equipment to read the codes or get a service manual with flow charts to walk you through reading the codes off the side of the computer. Hope this helps. Good luck :O)

A quick take off can "blow the cobwebs out" on older motors. Chances are if the car still runs good it is an O2 sensor on your exhaust. Wouldn't worry about it other than having to pass smog tests. Over heating problems could be a thermostat or head gasket problem that could ruin your motor. If you don't have a temp gauge talk to a parts store about having a code reader hooked up, most will do it for free.

On a Ford system you need a code reader, no other way. The plug is under the steering column.
