Did you check to make sure there is power to the pump? There is a relay box under the air intake that contains relays for PCM, Fuel Pump and A/C. If the FP relay has failed you'll need to replace that box. You'll need the numbers off of it and your best shot is to get it directly from Ford. I found this out the hard way and I was a parts man at the time! Good Luck!

did you change the fuel filter? check for spark ?

You mean no spark? If so, check for crankshaft and/or cam sensor failure. More than likely crankshaft as that's what controls the spark. Could also be the above mentioned box as that controls power to the PCM as well.
