Check your fuel filter they have water seperators built in and a drain petcock on the bottom. Put a bucket or something to catch fuel underneath and open the drain to allow the filter to empty. I'd recommend replacing the filter between 90 days and 6 months and try adding some diesel kleen additive this works exceptionally well in the winter months. As long as the cylinders aren't misfirng you may have some restricted injectores. I have a fleet of diesel trucks and that is 90% of my problem with them. Especially if you use an auxillary or day tank to fill up from as moisture can seep in through the vent cap

1985 ford f350 diesel will not allow the ignition to engage. Dash light says water in fuel. I put on a new fuel filter. Did not help. Can I bypass the sensor?


The Diesel engine doesn't have an ignition system. Also the dash light shouldn't cause it not to start? You said you changed the fuel filter right? After you started cranking it again did the lift pump fill the new filter up. I have had these before where the lift pumps go bad causing low lift pump pressure which causes the water in fuel light to be on. Did it die going down the road or did you shut it off and can't get it restarted.

I may have put water in the gas tank what should I do? i used two bottles of water evaporator already and it still wont start. Do I need to do major work now?


you will have to try and drain it out, if there is no drain plug, remove fuel tank, water evaporator will only deal with small amounts of moisture, you will also need a new fuel filter and drain the carb(unless it is injected) and the water can corrode the injectors after time

1997 dodge intrepid! Fuel and brownish liquid in throttle body!


The fact you can tell the fuel from the brown fluid, tells me they have seperated. This would mean the brown fluid is water. If this is a recent problem you may have got a bad batch of gas, if you did, change
the fuel filter and let the lines drain. Try and catch
the fuel from the tank in a glass jar(1/2 pint or so)and
let stand for about 15min and see if it seperates(water on bottom) if you have alot more gas, hook up
the new filter, put in a couple of cans of dry gas and
fill with fresh gas. Hope this helps. Good luck

Hard starting have changed fuel filter four times in two weeks


Either carry a lot of fuel filters or drain the fuel tank after it sits for a full two days, You have water in the fuelor a ton of algae. Confirm the water by pouring out the fuel filter. Any water will be obvious. The water in the tank will separate from the fuel if left standing. Then the water can be drained out the bottom of the tank.Water in the fuel can blow tips off injectors so take heed. and good luck.If you don't have a fuel water seperator, consider having a RACOR separater installed.

I purchased new a 2004 Ford Excursion w/ 6.0 diesel, now has 58,000 on it recently it would loss power like starving for fuel. I put the pedal to the floor and it would idle for a short period, then...


It was as simple as changing the fuel filters. I change them regularly but never experienced a symtom like this, must have gotten a few bad loads of fuel. I used a clean clear 2 gallon container and drained the water seporator first (located in the chassis rail under the driver floor, (7mm. allen key) about 2 quarts came out slowly because I did not remove the plug completly until it was empty,(10 minutes on level ground) then removed the water seporator filter, pain in the *** with 4 whheel drive.
Removed old filter and used a whole can of brake parts cleaner in allen key hole as well as filter orfice, lots of rust, debri, and muck. That was not enough I whiped out filter housing (messey) and put a small magnet into the water drain several times until clear.Reinstalled new filter and water drain plug. Turned ignition to on position and listen to fuel pump prime up until it stopped,(about a minute or two) started the engine
and let run for one minute, shut down and changed the filter under the hood. It's important to do it that way because after cleaning all the gunk out of the water seperator filter the left residue will collect into the fuel injection filter. Results were awsome. Like a new truck. Never expected it to be a filter problem because I service it regular.P.S. the clear container contained no water, but rust, dirt, and alot of algie.
