Question 2003 6.0l f250 trouble code p0263

I pulled codes on 2003 f250 6.0L and got
P0263 cylinder 1 contribution balance
P0266 cylinder 2 contribution balance
P0404 EGR circuit malfunction
P2269 water in fuel
should i get a check engine light with any of these codes?
and if so what do i do, and how detrimental are these codes to the truck

Looking for any information on these codes, really i am looking for what they really mean.... any response will be helpful

liv is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
I would focus on PO404 and P2269 I would imagine the 3 first ones would throw the check engine light on. The last one should throw the Water In Fuel light on.

Clean/replace your EGR valve and it should clear the 404 code. Drain your FICM and it will clear the 2269 code. Don't forget to change your fuel filters. Instructions for all the above are in the Tech Folder at the top of our section

I would worry about the injector codes, is your truck running rough cold or hot? If it is only running rough cold then the revised cold start strategy program should correct this concern. Cleaning your egr valve is a good idea for the p0404 which is a performance code. For the water in fuel light, sometimes draining your frame mounted fuel module is insufficient. Debris likes to collect behind the cover in front of the sensor and sometimes you have to remove it and clean it out by hand but by all means drain if first and try that. its a 6mm allen wrench to remove the plug.

I know this is a dumb question, but there are numerous references to the "tech folder", and I would just like to ask where this most valuable folder is hidden. On my screen, there appears nothing titled "tech folder". Probably just one of those website in the know things, but I'd like to be in the know.

Thanks,

Revised cold start strategy is a program from Ford that tells the Fuel Injector Control Module to energize the coils at the same time to heat the injectors up quickly to eliminate the spool valves sticking internally and causing misfires on cold starts. A very common problem, the program fixes about 90% of running rough when cold issues.
