What ford is known for...one problem after another

Well it started on last wednesday when i went go see a friend that was an hr a way from houston, and when i was on my way back home, i stopped at a gas station. now recently i had a problem with the wiring to the plug that connects to the crank position sensor, but supposively the problem was solved the night before. so thinking i did the wiring wrong i un-did the wiring and tried to fix it all up again, but it still wouldnt start. so thinking it was a crank position sensor, i walked down 7 lights (3 hrs) to the nearest Autozone and i got a sensor. then walking back to the car, and try to fix it in the night time, i simply gave up and called my mom to get me towed back into town. so the next morning, when i went to get my car out of the shop it was towed to, they seemed to fix the problem without installing the new sensor. so after paying them $100 for the towing and "repair" done i went home pissed. then to make matters worse, same shit happened again in the evening. so the next day after getting my car to start with separating the wires to the plug, i took it to my uncle to get it checked out along with getting the pass. cv axle replaced. turns out there was some melted, exposed wiring laying against the metal part of the coil pack, thus preventing it to start. only if ive known.......
