Possible distributor stator (pick up assem) .. Check to see if it's black in color and cracked or 'mushy' when probed with screwdriver .. Also possible ignition 'switch' separation, open circuit to ignition coil or coil has failed... Do you know where the *spout connector* is for setting ignition timing?

No sir I'm mechanical stupid I change small stuff like what I replaced in this case but that's bout it I kinda understand what u explained but I think ima just cut my losses an have it towed to the Ford dealership

That probably the best bet .. Everyone's not a mechanic, and that's a good thing too!
