116 = engine coolant sensor out of range
172 = Right O2 sensor stuck on lean
176 = Left O2 sensor stuck on lean
181 & 189 = fuel system lean
332 = EGR valve not responding correctly
I would recommend you have the codes cleared and see how many come back a second time, then troubleshoot those.
Since the O2 sensors are working, it could be a vac leak or low fuel pressure among other things.

The engine and automatic transmission in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

i think napa auto parts offer a kit

Not really.
The air bags act as replacement or extra coil springs to hold the car up.
You might be able to replace them with coil springs from a Crown Vic.
That may cause problems with the front air bags and the rest of the system.

You have a 4.6 single overhead cam engine in your 93 tw as that is what mine has but as you were told it is probably the catalatic converters getting plugged up with that many miles miles on her it wouldnt be surprised and as far as as the how to read diagnostic codes Auto Zone sells a scanner to do that for around 300.00 I wasnt impressed with the scanner so i returned it and got my money back then went on E-Bay and bought a Snap-On 2500 series scanner and bought the cartridge for it and read all the codes it was giving it then proceeded to fix my 93 tc ...problem was not the same as your tho letting you knopw where i bought my scanner so maybe you can too ...FYI.... the ABS brakes have a seperate hook-up that a regular scanner wont read another reason i returned the auto Zone scanner , this older snap-on will read both sets of diagnostic and there is one more item that uses its own diagnostics and that is the A/C controller you will find all infomation on how to obtain any codes to help repair it ....Sorry this is so long but i belive this info will help a lot of people owning lincolns and grand marquies and Crown vics with ATC or EATC..

What year, make and model car is this? Most likely, black smoke is
usually a carburator problem. If it's fuel injected, black smoke can be caused by 1) leaking or faulty fuel injecters, 2) faulty choke, 3)dirty air
filter or 4) faulty distributor cap and/or rotor. Hope this helps.

No read the fix below.

Engine stalling issue at low speeds

This problem 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 idle control
