The intake manifold is notorious for cracking (no thanks to it being plastic). The headunit (cd player/radio) is also known to take a sh#$ on you and give an error thus becoming a "brick".

Besides that, its really just the usual maintnance kinda things to watch out for. Keep the MAF clean to steer clear of a check engine light. Keep fluids changed as needed.

Anything you need help with or want to ask?

I thought the intake manifold problem was fixed in 01 or something. I believe a 2003 intake manifold has the aluminum crossover where the problems used to lie.

Other than that, just make sure you do the usual maintenance. These engines are pretty solid if taken care of properly. There's a reason Ford puts them in the police car Crown Vics.

No got it from a private owner. Screw dealers, they are horrible these days. My car, at a dealer, would be more around 14k. Just copy and paste your link.
