Question about 1995 Ford Taurus
Check fuse box it has two ECM fuses one is power for the computer and turns off and on with switch the other is for computer memory check fuses if both fuses are good And computer still has no memory i think your going to find ECM problems. I Have bought many computers from wrecking yards and saved a lot of money. The persom adviseing you there is no memory is sadly mistaken but thats ok. One other thing I wish you would try is to disconnect battery for about one minute. setting the computer to factory specs try that and see if it changes anything. all computers have memorys sence mid 80s next time your engine light comes on go to Auto Zone and get it checked but dont turn the car off leave running

Your mechanic is telling you the truth. Ford's OBD 1 [before 1996] electronic diagnostic system is terrible. I've run into this sort of issue numerous times with older Ford products. The design of these systems is extremely poor.
As Steve mentioned, the computer "should" remember the problem. However, if the problem is intermittent, the computer will erase the code after a predetermined number of ignition cycles [number of times you turn the car on and off]
I've seen numerous intermittent faults on older Fords that do what you describe. Does the vehicle run poorly when the light comes on?
