    If it ain't broke don't fix it, my 'Check engine light' has been on since the day I bought my truck.
    Much like in your case I went to find out about it and I do know in my case it stands for "EGR,"
    and believe you me I done been up under there and worked and worked on that crap
    but for the life of me I can't seem to be able to fix it...
    A stripped bolt and several busted knuckles, lots of sweat and a few choice words later it still comes on.
    So the truck runs, good at that, sucks to watch that light but heck with it.

    btw with my cars I think one red light on the dash board is normal,
    especially that Check Engine light, I'd be more worried if it was Oil or Temp

    A lot of people have had a lot of problems with the 6.0's. My dad made the mistake of buying one brand new from the factory. Dealer bought it back becaude of the lemon law. Ford needs to go back to the 7.3's. More reliable, would run forever, great power.

    Rmember, there is no replacement for displacement. (cubic inches)

    That was a bad year, Ford was trying to make cut backs in over head costs in 2002-2003 and they shortened wires and cut corners to save money.
    Don't run dirty fuel with water, stay on top of your oil changes and filter replacements, drive it hard, but not all the time and let it warm up a bit when it gets frosty.
