Timing adjustment???

I have a 3.0 V6 in a 99 Ranger with 130,000 miles. It has simptoms of an engine that is in despreate need of a timing adjustment. Only thing is, the ingnition is all electronic.

Does any one know what might be causing this terrible "pinging"? I just bought the truck 2 months ago and realy do like it, but it is starting to tick me off that it is running this way. I've got to get it fixed before I damage the valve seats....

Thanks in advance for any info anyone has. I'm not even sure what direction to go in first.......
