    If you have a diesel engine you would drain the water from the drain valve that is located on the bottom of the fuel filter housing, and it is not out on the frame but it should be located on the side of the engine. If the light stays on then you should replace the fuel filter and clean out the strainer trap.

    No problem, and the drain valve is similar in appearance to a radiator drain valve.

2006 f350 6.0 diesel hesitates, stutters under light load

These trucks have a history of epg valve problems . Sure sign is thick black smoke , Also you are suppose to drain water from filter case with a 6mm Allen wrench . Its on frame rail under drive seat . That filter is often over looked to . If the water hasn't been drained every month it destroys the injectors . My bet is the fuel filters . One filter underneath an one on top of motor .

Passenger side water leak

your sunroof has a drain tube off where it connects to the sunroof frame-the water is running down the windshield pillar on the inside of the trim and out under the dash

My 2005 F-250 is reading water in fuel. Where is the valve to remove the water?

You can locate the horizontal fuel-conditioning module (HFCM) mounted to the frame rail underneath the driver's seat. Place a drain pan under the HFCM. Turn the fuel drain lever outwards and let the HFCM drain into the pan until clean fuel is observed coming from the module, then close the drain lever.

I have heard of people having to do this 2 or 3 times over the course of a week to get the light to remain off.

It may be a good idea to replace the filter element while you are in there as follows:

  1. Remove the fuel-filter lid from the HFCM with an adjustable wrench turned in a counterclockwise direction. Place the lid aside. Pull the old fuel filter from the HFCM and clean the filter mating surfaces with a clean rag.

  2. Insert a new filter element into the HFMC until it is fully seated. Remove the old "O" ring gasket from the fuel-filter lid and discard it. Stretch a new "O" ring gasket (included with a new fuel filter) over the lid and work it into the groove. Lubricate the gasket with clean diesel fuel applied with your finger. Tighten the cap in a clockwise direction onto the HFCM with an adjustable wrench. Remove the drain pan from under the vehicle.

  3. Open the hood and remove the fuel-filter housing lid on top of the engine with an adjustable wrench turned in a counterclockwise direction. Lift the old fuel-filter element from the housing and clean the filter mating surfaces with a clean rag.

  4. Push a new filter element into the housing until it is fully seated. Replace the "O" ring gasket on the lid in the same fashion as the HFCM fuel-filter lid and lubricate with diesel fuel. Screw the lid back on and tighten with an adjustable wrench. Close the hood.

Where safety goggles and gloves and good luck.

    NOTE Check the fuel filter/heater element housing and the filter for a dislocated filter seal or foreign debris. Contamination on the filter/heater housing may cause leakage at the fuel filter. Coat the seal with clean engine oil.

Water in fuel light comes on, engine won't start, profuse white smoke on cranking. Trying to find fuel filter/separator, but unable to.

If this an e 350 between 93 and 2003, the fuel filter is located on top of engine front. You will have to take air filter box off to get to it, the fuel filter housing has a lever on the side to drain water. Always a good idea to use fuel conditioner, especially in the winter. Will help disperse the moisture in the fuel. Remember after changing the fuel filter, you will have to bleed the fuel system. bleed it by cranking engine until it starts, if the vehicle has a mechanicle fuel pump ( 98 or earlier) later modles have an electric pump. System may be primed by cycling the electric fuel pump 2 or 3 times. Please me feedback if this helps. This is is the only way we know if we helped you with a problem
