Ford Motor Company makes Fords, Lincolns & Mercurys. The Mercury Sable is the same car as a Ford Taurus, just different names and a little different trim. they use the same parts.

What would make a 1996 Ford Taurus Missfire really bad. I have replaced the spark plugs but still misses at idle and high speed.?

My experience with Taurus ignition systems tells me that you should test your wires for resistance. If they check out, I would look next at the fuel injectors. If they are fine then you are looking at the ECM/ignition controller as the possible culprit. That is my list in order of expense and difficulty. I hope that helps.

Where is the Fuse for Check engine light for 1995 Mercury Sable?

There isn't a fuse for it. That'll be powered... for that model year, it'll be powered by the engine ECM (newer ones will be powered off the dash cluster module). So you can't just pull a fuse and disable it. But if you're trying to pass emissions, it wouldn't work anyhow.
