Question about 1999 Ford Taurus
It is possible the belt is slipping causing tbe smoke. Alternator is not charging. It may be locked from bearing going bad so it doesnt turn. Hope this helps.

Sounds like the alternator bearing is going bad and it is not turning freely when the serpentine belt trys to turn it. because of this the belt is slipping on the alternator pulley and causing it to burn. thats why you are getting the smoke in the cab of the car. the smoke should have a burning rubber odor. if this is the problem. you need to replace the alternator.

Sounds like you have a main lead from the positive earthing on the body or engine somewhere check the lead from the battery to the alternator or starter then to altenator
hope this helps

This sounds like a MAP sensor. Have it scanned for the codes to make sure. Your mechanic can do this orany Ford Dealer for 75 - 100.00. I'm 98% sure this is a MAP sensor problem. Any questions please feel free to ask. Chris J.C. Towing

You shouldn't have taken the car back,nor should the shop given you the vehicle,if you were willing to have it properly repaired.
The MIL Light is an indication of an issue or two and you said it runs rough and has no power. What more does a shop need. Repair it.
Is the Fuel Filter fairly new
Did they Clean the MAF Sensor,and make sure your air filter cover is on correctly,and you have no vacuum leaks.
They can look at all sensor data and resolve this ,if they wanted to.

Testimonial: "I will take my car to different shop and ask them to look at these possibilities. Thank you."
WELL CHECK ALTERNATOR FUSE.IF FUSE GOOD HAVE CAR SCANNED FOR A GENERATOR FAULT CODE.YOUR ALTERNATOR IS PCM CONTROL.WITH CAR RUNNING YOUR VOLTAGE OUT PUT AT BATTERY FROM ALTERNATOR SHOULD BE 13.5 TO 14.5 VOLTS.CHECK BATTERY CABLES MAKE SURE THEY ARE CLEAN AND FREE FROM CORROSION.
