You say it has had a fuel filter change? Can you hear the fuel pump working as you turn the key to the on position before engaging the starter? Isn't your ford fuel injected?

This sounds like the fuel pump may need replacing. Have the fuel pressure checked out, and no, you would be left high and dry somewhere if you turn it off, and eventually it won't start at all.
