Fords require a SPECIAL ADAPTERS, One for the low side and one for the high side and they are very expensive. The adapter you are looking for has a BLUE knob on the adapter that attaches to the LOW PRESSURE fitting and a RED knob adapter that attaches to the HIGH SIDE fitting and they are NOT interchangeable. Once you buy the BLUE LOW SIDE ADAPTER it will only fit ONE of the 2 fittings on the vehicle. Then you can attach your hose to the adapter. It is much cheaper to have a garage install your can of freon for about $5.00 rather than spending about $50.00 for the adapters. This was borrowed from another website - hope it helps.
