If the check engine light is coming on periodically when hitting a bump in a 1995 Ford Taurus, perhaps a sensor is loose. Check both the oxygen sensors and the speed sensors on the transmission. Also check all sensors in the engine to make sure they are tight.
Same as any engine. If your gear shift is moving as well it will possibly be your engine mounts. If its been happening when cornering check your drive shafts.
An engine cylinder misfire has been detected if your check engine light is flashing on and off

My check engine light came on after I hit a pothole. What does this mean?
automatic....engine warm and running while in park, standard, engine off. But this is covered in your owner's manual
check the front of the engine at the bottom for an electrical plug
No, check it after the engine has not been running for at least 15 minutes.
11 years of changes... not at all likely to work. Check with a local auto salvage yard or engine rebuilder, but don't expect it to be possible.
Remove negative battery terminal for 10 mins.
Basically, the timing is set and adjusted by the engine computer.
The Check Engine Light (CEL) does not measure oil levels. There will be a specific dash/instrument panel warning light for oil - refer to the Owners Manual for specifics for your year Taurus. See "Related Questions" below for more
Check the oil after the engine has not been run for at least 30 minutes.
if you disconnect the battery for at least 5 minutes then reconnect it ,it will reset the check engine light
Reset the Check Engine Light by disconnecting the battery for about 10 minutes.
More than likely it would. Check to make sure the engines are the same size and it should fit.
That is a check engine light. It could be many things but it needs to be hooked to a diagnostic machine to determine what the problem is.
You can check it when the engine is cold and you should check the oil level in your engine when the engine has sat for at least 30 minutes. This way all the oil has drained back into the oil pan and you will get an accurate reading on the dipstick.
you disconnect the battery for a couple minutes.
Check old Taurus catalogs
If your check engine light is blinking with the engine running that means an engine cylinder misfire has been detected ( you can drive it in for repair , just avoid any rapid acceleration or deceleration , you can damage the catalytic converter )
Try replacing the fuel pressure regulator
