The low pressure port is inside the right front wheel well on top of the dryer bottle, Turn your front wheels to the right and reach up behind the plastic guard just behind the front bumper

You need to check two things for Ford A/C:
1) Verify that the proper levels of old/r134a are present, you can do this your self it takes only a cheap gauge and a thermometer, you will need to check both the low and high side pressures.
What you are looking for is that both sides read what they should for the ambient temp outside, at 95F it is around 42 on the low side and 275 on the high side.
2) Make sure the A/C clutch is kicking in.
Most problems are going to be ring leakage that causes low fluid levels, or a hole in the dryer that does the same thing. If you have proper levels and the clutch is still not locking in and turning the compressor and you do not have the tools or knowledge to start replacing parts take it to a shop and have them look at it.
If you want to post the results of the above test I will try to help more.

If compressor isn't kicking in, check the connector atop the a/c accumulator, beside the coolant recover tank, in the engine compartment. That connector is atop a black bottle, and the connector goes to the low pressure switch. These switches do fail, and you can jump a wire across the connector terminals to see if the compressor comes on (engine running). As this circuit provides part of the ground path from the compressor clutch, if the switch is open, the compressor will never turn on. If the switch is failed, it can be replaced without opening the a/c system. Just disconnect the connector, unscrew the switch, replace it, and reconnect the connector.

To access the low pressure port you have to remove the right front wheel and inner fender.
