You didn't say if it's a four cylinder or six cylinder. Your best bet would be to go to the library and get a book on your car which shows the ignition system wiring diagram and firing order, this should help you. Good luck.

Is there "Freeze Plugs" on a 1994 Mercury?

Virtually all engine blocks have freeze plugs. They serve two purposes:
  1. They are designed to burst out of the block in case the engine coolant freezes, preventing a cracked block.
  2. They allow for a more thorough cleaning of the engine block when the block is "tanked" during rebuild/remanufacture.
One thing to consider...what weight of motor oil are you using during the bitter cold months? Heavier weight oils get very thick on the cold mornings. This makes cranking harder and increases engine wear. Check with a local dealer and see if the manufacturer has any suggestions for a thinner oil in the cold months to make starting/running easier.

Reverse lights dont work in 94 topaz. I replaced bulbs and fuse is good.

look at the top of your transmission near the shift cables and there should be a large bolt-looking fitting with two wires coming out of it and a plug on the end. Disconnect this plug, then place a wire across the iside terminals of the plug coming from the body, not the trans. Check the lights then and if the are on, you have a bad reverse light switch. Hope this helps :)
