Misfires and commonly caused by faulty spark plugs! replace the damage ones and clean the outside connectors.

My96 Towncar is now misfiring I beleive. It just started a couple days ago. My check engine light was on and I had it reset at Autozone with codes of P420 & P430. The problem seemed intermittent but...

On the money side of things I have bad news for you
The car is far from new,at 15 years old

That is about the life of exhaust converters

You have 2 Codes P0420 & PO430,those are
converters below efficiency

Also more troubling is the ignition misfires

You likely have had them possibly for years
and unaware of it.
Misfires cause raw fuel to enter the converters and
overheat and ruin them. Your are due for replacement

BUT--you have to work on correcting the misfires first
Then you will need 2 new converters
All 4 O2 Sensors ,as they will be ruined from the heat
or just over 100,000 miles.

You are 100% correct on all your statements
Spark Plugs very seldom misfire and do not correct
You have to diagnose those issues with finding
the cause of the misfire. As you said a combination
of things. Worn plugs,old O2 Sensors,clogged converters,
EGR Valve issues,vacuum leaks. All minor until you
combine them

Let us know how your proceeding or what you want to do

get your car scanned (AutoZone does this for free) My TC has done this twice and both times it was an ignition coil gone bad. If that is the problem the engine scan will tell you what cylinder has the misfire.

My 1994 4.6L Lincoln Executive Series has water in the oil but the problem is not blown head gaskets.

How do you know? Could be the oil cooler (where the oil filter bolts to the engine)

I have a 2000 Lincoln executive series. I believe the engine fan is not coming on, causing the engine to overheat, but the gauge is at the normal range. Is there a fuse I can check?

its possible it may be the temp sensor switch, which is located on the radiator, easy and cheap to replace, this sensor sends the signal to the fan, if its faulty,or broken, it wont send the signal

2000 lincoln town car executive series sparkplugs

Between the rocker cover and the fuel rail are the coils, one per cylinder hed in place by a smill 8mm bolt. Remove the coil and find the spark plug wire, the arrangement is called a coil-on-plug or COP. Spark plug is in the tube from whince the spark plug wire came. 5/8" deep socket and long extension will reach it. Another hint find some way to clean out the tube before removing the spark plug least all kinds of junk winds up in the cylinder.......SMith

Yes, you will eventually ruin the catalytic convertors. So what may be a $200 dollar repair may turn into a $1500 repair.
