SOURCE: abs light on

I'm a Ford service adviser. There are many reasons for the
abs warning indicator to come on. The usual cause is from a
faulty speed sensor. Either a wheel speed sensor or the
differential speed sensor. I don't think the light is related to your vandalism. You might want to take the truck to an auto parts store and have them read the codes for you. Most auto parts stores will do this for free.
Good Luck

Turbo sensor? are you talking about the EBV sensor? MAP sensor? if it is the EBV sensor it is located under the turbo on the turbo pedestal it is just about under your exhaust down pipe that comes from the turbo facing the passenger side of truck, you may have to remove Down pipe other than that it will have a clip with a wire and then it will screw out and then you replace it with the new one remember to put teflon tape on the threads to ensure ther is no leak and do not over tighten the sensor it is only gong to aluminum and can strip and or brake off vary easy and then you have a alot of work to fix that... if it is your MAP sensor it is located on the passenger side of truck as well and will have a black rubber tube and it will have a wire with clip unclip remove rubber tube and unscrew snsor and replace again do not over tighten hope this helps message me and I will anser any more questions

My oil stick is at the add line. How much oil should I put in? And what kind of oil? Dont know the oil compacity on the engine.

You do not list the engine size. This truck comes with 3 engines. 5.4 V8, 7.3 Diesel, and a V10. Your owner's manual will list the capacity. The add mark normally means add 1 quart on a V8. Add 1/2 quart wait 5 minutes and check the level again. The 5.4 L V8 capacity is 6 quarts of 5w20 with filter change. If it is a diesel then it requires a special oil for diesels which is 15w40 weight and it holds 14.5 quarts.

On a 2000 ford super duty does the cab have to come off to remove cylinder head

No it does not. Your engine should either be the V8, V10 gasser or the 7.3 ltr diesel. All of these engines have timing and gears in the front side of the engine. The only ones that will need the cab removed or pulling the engine is the trucks equipped with the 6.0 liter engine as they have the gearing on the back side of the engine. These started in 2003 and went until 2007 I believe.
