Question OASIS Report...ARN MESSAGES

I just pulled the Oasis Report for my '06 F250 PSD that I bought about 4 months ago. I wish I had pulled it before I bought the truck. I was curious if any of you out there might know what the ARN Messages are that show up on the report. I have three that look like this...

ATTENTION TECHNICIANS AND SERVICE MANAGERS:
BEFORE REPLACING FUEL INJECTORS FOR COLD ENGINE OPERATION SEE TSB 07-05-04
BEFORE REPLACING 6.0L TURBOCHARGER OR VGT SOLENOID REFER TO 07-16-01
BEFORE REPLACING 6.0L CYLINDER HEAD GASKETS REFER TO 07-21-05


For some reason I have a sneaky suspision that it has to do with the programmer that was installed when I bought it. I am having to deal with trying to get an oil leak fixed, that the dealer says is my rear main, right now.

those are messages for the techs....and EVERY 6.0 out there has them on their oasis. Its simply a warning about how to diagnose and fix common problems so ford doesnt have to pay too much for a tech misdiagnosing it and then having to basically "fix" it twice...

I found this one for you TSB's are just guidelines for techs to follow from ford in most cases

White Smoke, Lack of Power, Exhaust Odor, Surge, Runs Rough, or No Start:
The above symptoms on trucks equiped with the 6.0 when the engine is cold may indicate a sticking injector spool valve. To reduce the likelyhood of this condition, there is a revised program available for the Fuel Injection Control Module. This new program uses the injector spool valve solenoids to preheat the oil at the injectors. The diagnostic computer has to be at version 47.8 or higher, or 48.2 or higher to upload this new program. The new program supercedes TSB #06-2-13, which caused the injectors to actuate (buzz) for 30 seconds after the engine is shut off. With this program the injectors will no longer buzz on shut-down.
TSB #07-5-4

With the experience i had with my 6.0 it could refer to alternate procedures, eg cleaning instead of replacing. Or a computer flash update in leu of replacement, just another idea...

I sure appreciate all of your help....it takes the worry off my back, especially since I have to take it in for what they tell me is a rear main seal leak.
