No. Stick with what Ford specs say and 107,000 is not really that high to start to think about changing oil viscosity.

Reg,as david said,stay with what ford recomends,5-20 is a good grade of oil 107k is not high have seen these as high as 270 k if maintained,plus the 5-20 wt will also help fuel economy,hope this helps

No, use what Ford tells you to. My '03 Chevy S-10 Pick Up has 276,800 miles on it. Chevy said use 5W30 in the owner's manual. That's what I use and it runs great. No noises and about 35 psi when fully warmed up. HTH. -Jim
