The 1998 had the AX4S transmission and the 2002 has the AX4N transmission. Simply put, it may physically "fit" but the transmissions do not interchange without substantial issues (mostly due to computer differences and the two having different driven sprocket tooth counts, you'll get a number of error codes at a minimum).

Ok, i would ave the ignition coil pack tested for its operational valve asap if possible. this is either an ignition coil pack issue or, a bad ECM. the ECM controls the ignition timing in this vehicle so, the problem will be there if the crank shaft sensor and cam sensors are ok.
I would pull the trouble codes asap as well. this will help diagnosis this issue correctly. this can be done at a local auto zone or a local mechanics shop as well.

These codes are dealer specific. Please call you local dealer and they will give you the exact meaning.
For now I think you may find the code needs to be verified.
Here is my advice.
Have the reading done by - Auto Zone and also Advance Auto all over again. If the codes match
Take down the vin# - call the dealer and tell them the code. Ask them what it means and - -ask if your vin# brings up and recalls or service needs as issued by the factory. Some things never go out of date.
One last this - your header here says 1995 -your note says 1998. You need to sort that out as well.

Check for a small hole in the right angle rubber hoses between the PCV valve and the motor. A hold in the hoses will give a false alarm indicating "lean bank1" and "lean bank2" on Fords and Lincolns and once you replace those faulty hoses or at least tape them up you can reset the codes at the parts store and it should not come back until you have holes in the hoses again. you can also keep driving the car and after numerous "successful trips" with no more codes, the engine light will eventually go off if you have corrected the problem.
