Ford has a kit where you match the tumblers to your existing key

If you wait till it does not turn at all then it will cost much more!
This it NEEDS to be changed before it locks up then it becomes a few hundred bucks to fix. You can buy a ign cly from a local lock smith and he can key it for you. This should cost no more than $100 and then install is pretty easy from there.

This is what you have to do if it locks up

This is what you have to do if you replace it now, see post 2

As you can see you wanna replace it now!
