Question about 1999 Mercury Cougar
What can I do to fix my fuel line from freezing..I put dry gas n premium gas in and the problem is not resolved. It stall out as soon as you start it. But if you drive its fine..just hopefully you don't have to stop. I got the fuel filter,fuel pump checked all good. They said I have water in my gas tank...how do I fix it though???
If you got freezing and all these problems persist. And you did all that you said you did, then I must say first of all, You got one H*** of an engine. But, No choice, You have to drain your Fuel Tank. I think you already knew that. Just hope you don't keep it topped off. Good Luck.

Tips for a great answer:
Besides your vehicle's oil and car battery, the fuel line can also be an issue during winter. In theory, there should be no water in your fuel line from the start. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. When your fuel lines freeze no gasoline can get to the motor, meaning combustion is halted, which leads to your car not turning over.
Condensation from temperature fluctuations could leave water in your gas line or fuel tank, which causes further complications.
Using fuel with a low alcohol content or premium fuel is one solution. However, in many cases, it may be necessary to repair or replace your fuel lines entirely. You can buy a product that dries up the water in the gas tank when the car is warm from auto parts store. Use a lighter weight oil because your oil gets thicker when below freezing. Try a 5w weight oil.
