The 4.0 V6 is spec'd for 5w30 unlike some other Ford engines that were back spec'd to 5w20. I'd use a 0w30 or 5w30 synthetic in it with confidence. My friend had a 2001 Ranger with the 4.0 V6 SOHC. We ran SynPower 5w30 in it and it was extremely q

On start up the oil is normally well below the crank. When it's running perhaps 1/2 quart is up in the engine making it's way back to the pan. This lowers the level of oil in the pan even more, so you shouldn't have a problem.
