I hope one of the Ford techs will chime in on this but that oil temp doesn't look real. Watching mine on my Insight from a stone cold start up it takes a while for the oil temp to match the coolant temp but from that point on it never drops more than a few degrees below the coolant temp and is usually 4-7 degrees above the coolant temp. With no load on the engine the coolant is heating the oil so it can't be 117*. Sounds to me like an oil temp sender is in order to start with...and a careful check of the wiring. Make sure one on the intake bolts with the studded end isn't chaffing the harness.
