Ford released a service bulletin for these codes which called for replacing the intake gaskets and the isolator bolts as well as the LH valve cover and also having the computer reprogrammed to solve these codes. I have enclosed the bulletin in the link below. If you follow all the steps in it then this should clear your code as well as your concern. See the bulletin in the link below.

You should be able to print everything I sent you. You will need to take it in to the dealer to have the computer reprogrammed as per the service bulletin. The rest your husband should be able to tale care of.
