how many spark plugs did you replace?

In 1989 the 2.3 was changed to a DIS (Distributorless Ignition System) ignition utilizing a new 8-plug head ( 2-plugs per cylinder). This head had larger evenly spaced D-shaped intake ports and was used until the end of production of the 2.5 in 2001.

Check your timing belt also. I've had quite a few 2.3L Fords jump time on a worn belt. They should be replaced every 75K miles.
