Most will say 10w30w but I think if its really high on miles you can use 20w50w in the southern regions of the USA or a oil made for high mileage engines. I have use 20w50 in all my 4cyl engines even when new, I live in the south.

Mobil 1 is my 1st choice. Before synthetic I used Castrol oil.

I would use 5w30 Motorcraft synthetic blend as the manufacturer recommends.

High mileage oil is fine to use, if its smoking/using oil use a thicker oil. 5w20 is what Ford calls for. If consumption oil loss is a issue with your mileage now try using 5w20 high mileage first, if oil loss continues try 10w30 high mileage.
