allow me to translate

you are completely incompetent and have no buisness messing with your own car. Take it to a ford dealer so they can charge you 3 or 4 times the going rate for the repair.

Otherwise find the correct info on all OBDII codes that come with trouble shooting info.

I believe someone has posted a good link for that on this site.

Even if you don't feel competent to work on your own car, please, go to an independent garage, don't go to a Ford Dealer unless your car is under warranty, they will ream you, I promise you they will.

If it helps, http://www.obdii.com is OBD-II's site. You can get specifics on their codes et al. there.

Go to autozone and get the code read for free.

Look online for the codes actual meaing in lay-mans terms, and ask someone what you can do to fix it.

Yea, when your at autozone print it out with the error code, and the description, no one ever seems to do that.

Check Engine Light

My check engine light came on also. I took it to the Ford Dealership and they found that the DPFE Sensor was bad. They also said when I picked it up that this was a common problem. Also, the Sensor Assembly-EGR Pressure Valve was bad...

All under warranty.
