Start with the basics, and work your way up, Last tune up was? Wires plugs ALL filters? If all that is ok, check for a stuck EGR, then test fuel pump pressure, If it won't restart, determine what's missing, the engine needs three things to run, Spark at all plugs, gas to all cylinders, and compression in all cylinders, tho an engine may run lacking one in one cylinder, it won't run very well!

If you smell gas, check your oil level too, gas can be washing the cylider walls and filling up the crankcase...not good, this can and will damage the engine! Most often on Fords, its the ignition module...

I just had a tune up recently before this problem occurred I changed the spark plugs, wires, oil pretty much everything the car is getting gas, air, and a spark still no start it will crank but not start all the way up the engine sounds like its about to fully crank then it just stops I dont know what it is was thinking maybe an elctrical problem. But what is the electrical problem?
