SOURCE: Fuel pump reset switch

I don't have my manual right now, but check in the back compartment, right or left side behind a panel, or up front behind one of the kick panels.

SOURCE: Where is the fuel pump relay located on a 1992 Mercury topaz

the fuel pump relay is located on the left shock tower in the engine compartment in a black box 6x4x1 inches. there are other relays inside the same box which is actually called the ccrm or constant contorl relay module, there should be a double connector with 20 to 26 wires in it, hard to miss.

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.

My topaz has a sputtering problem! starts fine, idles fine, and switches gears fine! now it is fine when going like in first gear but when it switches then it sputters having hard time to go then at the...

Here is what I would do I would get carb cleaner and clean the carberator really good and depending on what happend there I would get a set of hotter burning spark plugs after carb cleaned then I would see if it still makes sputter and then all I could think of from there would be taking the car in to see if there is new updates that can be downloaded on the computer of the vehicle I once had a problem like that and got computer updates and worked like a dream after words they can usually be downloaded at the dealer ship but they charge for the updates and you should ask if there is any first but in the end when I did that problems solved better gas milage and smoother running engine

We have change tthe spark plugs and fuel filter but the car won't stay running it sputters and dies. what else should we be checking for?

You should check your idle control its at the rear of the engine on the drivers side. It has two bolts and one electrical connection. It can be cleaned by spraying carburetor cleaner into it and rinsing it out.Typically you should replace it but it can be around 100 dollars for the part.
