Question about 1998 Ford Explorer
The sluggish problem sounds like a coil or throttle position sensor. If the car idles well, but sputters when you hit the gas, look at the coil.
Your tire wear is an alignment problem. Since it is more on one side of the car, I suspect a ball joint (usually lower). Look at the tires from the front, if they don't look like they set vertical, change the ball joints and get an alignment.
