1. Day Fuel Tank
2. Fuel Water Separator
3. Fuel Strainer
4. Fuel Supply Pump
5. Fuel Filter
6. Fuel Injection Pump
7. Injectors
8. Return line to the day tank

Fuel water separator


Their is a cable with a tee handle on it next to your trans dipstick , always grab the tube with one hand and pull with other or you will break the bracket that\'s attached to it . If this has been done regularly you will not have an issue , the drain tube goes down the engine on the right side and usually soaks your front axle. But if you are replacing the fuel filter you have to remove the air cleaner box and also the silencer box to access the filter . My advise is not to use drain valve , suck out as much fuel as you can and then thoroughly clean out that fuel bowl before you install the filter .I have seen many of these powerstrokes with low power issues stemming from lack of maintenance. Make sure you change your oil regularly 5-6000 miles and if you live in a cold weather state you need to use 10w30 motor craft diesel oil , it works the best with those injectors

Fuel filter replacement 7.3 liter diesel


I'm not too uppety-up on diesels but I have changed a few. My description is pretty basic.
BEFORE doing anything, make sure you have at least a quart (or more) of FRESH CLEAN diesel in separate container.
Locating the filter is usually in site when opening hood and fairly easy to get to. The ones I've done, look simular to a spin on oil filter. Usually there is a valve on the bottom to drain fuel and/or water out out of the filter.
First, drain fuel out of filter,may need a hose and a catch pan so is not to make too much of a mess.
Second, spin old filter off.
Third, take your fresh clean diesel and pour it in the new filter up to being full but not running over, make sure you wet the o-ring with clean diesel also.
Fourth, spin new filter in place.
Fifth, turn ignition key to on for at least 10 seconds or more, NOT starting the engine. You should hear a pulsing sound, that's the pump priming the new filter, can't have any trapped air in system. If there is too much trapped air the engined will not start or stay running. This has worked for me quite a few times but if you want more information go to http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/index.php and put your question in the search box in the forums section. Hope this helps.

I have a 2001 Ford F350 Superduty. When it is cold out side it leaks diesel from the fuel filter/water seperator. So far this only happens when it is cold outside. If I plug the truck in it does not do...


Hi,
the diesel system on your vehicle works on a continous 'loop". Tank to engine....engine to tank. The fuel filters and the water separator are very susceptible to the diesel fuel 'clouding" , making the fuel heavier to push around the system. The 'clouding' is actually a type of wax which is normally held in suspension within the body of the fuel and thus is not a problem.

The wax starts to plug up the fuel system, and cause lots of problems. The fuel, being harder to push around the system, takes more pressure to move it. This will result in diesel leaqkage at any and all outlets to atmosphere at the pressure end.

The problem is usually resolved by adding an additive to the fuel tank, or having a water separator with a heater., There are also weap-around heating cables which can be fitted to fuel lines to aleviate the same problem. If your water separator has an automatic dump valve, you might like to check that it is functioning correctly and the water content is not freezing and providing an exit for the diesel fuel.

Good luck.

Where is the fuel filter located on a 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 Cummins Diesel?


It is located on the driver's side of the engine. You will see a yellow handle for the fuel/water separator drain valve at the bottom of the filter housing. The black plastic top unscrews and the filter can be pulled out.868820e.jpga75da07.jpg

WERE IS THE FUEL FILTER


A fuel filter is a filter in the fuel line that screens out dirt and rust particles from the fuel. They are normally made into cartridges containing a filter paper. They are found in most internal combustion engines.
Fuel filters serve a vital function in today's modern, tight-tolerance engine fuel systems. Unfiltered fuel may contain several kinds of contamination, for example paint chips and dirt that has been knocked into the tank while filling, or rust caused by moisture in a steel tank. If these substances are not removed before the fuel enters the system, they will cause rapid wear and failure of the fuel pump and injectors, due to the abrasive action of the particles on the high-precision components used in modern injection systems. Fuel filters also improve performance, as the fewer contaminants present in the fuel, the more efficiently it can be burnt.
Fuel filters need to be maintained at regular intervals. This is usually a case of simply disconnecting the filter from the fuel line and replacing it with a new one, although some specially designed filters can be cleaned and reused many times. If a filter is not replaced regularly it may become clogged with contaminants and cause a restriction in the fuel flow, causing an appreciable drop in engine performance as the engine struggles to draw enough fuel to continue running normally.
Some filters, especially found on diesel engines, are of a bowl-like design which collect water in the bottom (as water is more dense than diesel). The water can then be drained off by opening a valve in the bottom of the bowl and letting it run out, until the bowl contains only diesel. Many Fuel Filters contain a water sensor to signal to the ECU or directly to the driver (lamp on dashboard) if the water reach the warning level. It is especially undesirable for water to be drawn into a diesel engine fuel system, as the system relies on the diesel for lubrication of the moving parts, and if water gets into a moving part which requires constant lubrication (for example an injector valve), it will quickly cause overheating and unnecessary wear. This type of filter may also include a sensor, which will alert the operator when the filter needs to be drained. In the diesel fuel filter there is (usually) a fuel heater to avoid the paraffin (in case of lower temperature) inside the filtrating element which can stop the fuel flow to the engine.

Trying to find fuel filter location on 06 jetta 1.9 tdi


Should be mounted the same as a 2005. On the inner fender, above the right-hand wheel arch, in front of the windshield washer tank. Pull the retaining clip that secures the control valve to the top of the filter assembly. Pull up the control valve and its hoses, away from the filter. (1) To drain water out of filter: At the bottom of the fuel filter, loosen the drain plug, while holding a container underneath the filter to catch the diesel fuel and water. When you have drained the water, and diesel fuel is now draining -- stop! Twist the drain plug closed, pour a few ounces of fresh diesel fuel in the top of the filter. Use a new O-ring when reattaching the control valve to the filter top. When the vehicle is running, check for any leaks. (2) To replace the fuel filter: start where #1 above begins, disconnect the fuel control valve from the top of the filter; mark the other two fuel lines with tape and disconnect them (they may be attached with spring clamps that you will need to cut -- replace them with screw-type fasteners, see instructions below); remove the fasteners and take the filter and mounting bracket from the vehicle. Loosen the bracket and remove the filter. Fill a new filter with fresh diesel fuel (you don't want to try to turn the engine over to fill this filter -- you may burn up your starter) and install it in the bracket, then reattach the bracket to the vehicle. Attach the control valve with a new O-ring and secure the hoses with screw-type clamps. When the vehicle is running -- inspect for any leaks. Hope this helps -- these are instructions out of the 1998 - 2005 VW manual. Should be no different for the 2006.

2002 F-250 7.3 l diesel leaking fuel at the fuel filter


Running Bio-Diesel should not be a problem, although BD is a great solvent that will dissolve petroleum desposits left behind by regular diesel. I suspect that the gaskets on the fuel drain valve are worn out and leaking fuel. Most of the time the whole valve is replaced, but I have seen only the two o-rings for sale on the internet. It is easier to repair by laying on your front side on a large pillow. If that does not work, come back to fixya and we will help you again.
