Welcome to this forum! I've renamed your thread, and moved it into the stock 2002-2005 section.

have you replaced the oil sending unit? thats the most common failure and usually a cheap fix, before you get a cluster. As for the message center you would have to look to see if you can remove the old one. You already have the wiring, i would think its a replaceable module, but i can only guess its doable.

Yes you can remove and replace your message center.

i have an extra set of 02 mountaineer gauges w/o the message center if your interested. you can swap your MC from your old set to a new one. PM me if your interested
