Timing upgrade

I have an 02 Windstar 3.8. How do you do a timing upgrade? Is this something I can do, or do I have to take it to a Ford dealer?

It runs good. Quiet when ice cold, but as soon as it warms up it starts pinging. By pinging, I mean it sounds exactly like the clatter you would get on an older car (with old style distributer and points) when the timing was too far advanced. is there something else I should be checking first?
