Tech's call these "exploders", and I'd suggest you change the tranny fluid(trans service) and change ALL fluid way more than the manufacturers recommended intervals...

drain/flush and refill the Power Steering, Rear End, Radiator, and Engine/Trans...

Fords biggest problem is Materials...when their components start to wear they emit excessive amounts of metallic dust(all makers engines do this) this is why we have filters in things, but Ford is notorious for poor materials(as compared to German and Japanese makers)

when these abrasive compounds are building up, they create a downward spiral of more and more destruction...oil with AJAX-like abrasive metal wears everything flush...

so, check all the basics, battery good? cranks ok? got spark(read diagnosis in a manual) and start with the basics, as this could be alot of things...

sorry about the lecture, but being factory Ford trained may have slanted my view on these vehicles, also, pump up your tires to the TIRES maximum inflation pressure(cold) the spec is on the tire- for maximum control under sway...

best of luck

and everyone should have a manual for their vechicle, and the library should have a professional shop manual available in the reference section for FREE to make copies of--the PRO manual has more detailed info, and may have wiring diagrams when up and fix 'em like a PRO...good luck
