No way to tell if it was really hurt
Just go back to normal service intervals & hope that nothing was damaged

They made the 5.9L until 2003

If you are worried, buy some Rislone engine treatment and follow their recommendations. I have used it before to clean the inside of neglected motors.

try some seafoam treatments as well if you are looking for additional.
