Is your car a SC? Sounds like it is and sounds like it's possibly the crank sensor. Does the upshift arrow stay lit up while you're trying to crank it? If so, that's a dead giveaway. The crank sensor can go because of the harmonic balancer...stock ones are okay...but not for ever. Because of the way they are made, over time, they will walk before they fail completely. One way to check is to look at the crank bolt...is it there. They break many times just before the balancer fails. This is a common failure on a SC with a few miles on it. Check that and let us all know. It may not be as bad as you're thinking...

If you work on it yourself, check the crank sensor. It controls the the igniton timing. Get your hands on a repair manual and look it up. If you take it somewhere to be worked on, thats the first thing they will check. It's a typical Ford problem.
