Check the EGR Valve to see if it is opened when the engine is warmed up

If not that is your problem

If opened that catilytic convertor can be plugged . It will be very hot and when 90 percent plugged uo it will glow like a cherry

How do you remove the door panel in a 1996 thunderbird to replace the speaker?

use a flat head screwdriver and pop it off where it meets the door. Be careful when it comes loose. If it falls it can rip the wires from the power windows and locks.
