Just found your posting of the problem, 1st thing to do is see why the check engine light came on. You can stop at a parts store, most will check for codes for free. They plug a hand held scan tool into the computer port under the dash, and 'scan' for any trouble codes stored in the trucks computer. Write down the codes, and have them explain what they mean, and what they recommend to fix the problem. U can post any questions here, include the codes. U need to get this checked out before u attempt the long trip home, as this could result in a breakdown, or possible further damage to the vehicle if u continue to drive it.

Westin nerf bars

Send them back and get the extended cab bars. if you have doors behind the passenger and driver seat it is the extended cab. If you don't want to do that, if you know a welder, they can weld them on for you.

I can't get my truck to start because of the anti-theft lock.

One way I have found to fix that is to by-pass it. You might check your fuses and the little anti theft key under the steering wheel first though. Hope that helps.

Need a diagram to a 99 F-150 for the exterior lighting system

I recommend a Haynes Manual they have wiring diagrams inside, if you can't get one at your local parts store, then try your local library, you'd be surprised at how many repair books they carry, you can also go to autozone and ask them to pull it up on their system and print it out for you from Alldata, hope this helps, let me know

A leak

the only way to permanently fix that is to drain the block of all fluids and detach the battery, then weld the leak hole shut. You can try using a stop-leak product from your local auto parts store for a temporary fix.
