Fuel injection, NO carb sounds like it was detuned.

Check the timing. Doesn't hurt to scan for the codes either...http://straighttalkautomotive.com/OBD1/ford-OBD-I.html

Try adding some fuel injector cleaner to gas tank.

Check the transmission fluid. Have the car scanned for trouble codes at a local auto parts store. This is usually a free service.
