It most likely has water in it but not enough to turn the light on constantly

Does your truck have the big fram mounted fuel filter? If so there should be a drain plug where you can drain the water. Instead of having to replace the filter. also I might look at buying my fuel at a different place.

Replace the drain valve. They leak all the time.

Seems like a low injector control pressure situation. You may see plenty of oil pressure on the gauge but the high pressure oil that opens the injectors is probably passing through a blown STC fitting at the back of the high pressure pump or something of that nature. Check for smoke out the tail pipe, if there's smoke, I could be wrong. If you checked the glow plugs (make sure you have 12 comming and going through the relay, just because it clicks does not mean it's working) than you more than likely have compression, the last thing you need is fuel. To get fuel you need high pressure oil. Your truck should have an ICP sensor on the right valve cover toward the front. You can back probe or make a breakout harness to pins... ok I don't know what two pins but there is only three. Anyway backprobe the sensor and see if you have more than .82V while cranking. If you do not, go to the IPR (injection pressure regulator) which is behind and below the turbo. It is a round solenoid valve sticking out of the high pressure oil pump. This valve will have the connector pointing down and toward the back of the motor in it's "weather protecting" position. You can rotate this valve by hand so the connector is easier to get to but don't force it and break it. You will then need to apply 12V and a ground to this valve. Do not supply the voltage for more than 120 seconds though or you could burn the valve up. with 12V to the valve see if it will start. If it will you may have a power supply problem to the valve. If none of this helps let me know, the rest of the troubleshooting is pretty involved.

SOURCE: 2004 Ford F-250 6.0 liter diesel loosing coolant

i'm getting "internal control module keep alive memory?" for fault p0603. which i think has nothing to do with using coolant. i assume you're finding no leaks, so it's leaking somewhere you can't see. does it smell of antifreeze in the interior? is the carpet wet? the heater core might be leaking into the interior. there could be a slow leak on the top of the engine and it's boiling away before it has a chance to pool. fill your reservoir fully. let the engine get hot. inspect for steam in the engine compartment.

Have someone retime the engine. In a diesel it means to time the injection pump. You may have wear in the timing chain or gears. But the fuel ratio can be made rich or lean by when the fuel hits the cylinder.

Try that first as it is cheaper. You can have worn injectors and adding a cleaner will make the fuel run through faster. Possibly spray a little better, but it will not make the fuel nozzles any tighter.

Water in fuel light keeps blinking on and off...do I need to change the fuel filter????? 1997 F-250 7.3 powerstroke


Diesel engines are more prone to this problem, chek the seals on the guel fill neck to make sure there not leaking water in to the tank, other then that try adding an additive such as MDR Desiel warter zorb, its like $18.00 and see if that mitigates the problem. Fuel filter is recomended to be changed I belive every 70,000 miles on the Desiels.

did you prime the new filter (filling it with diesel) before installing if so youll have to check the pressure regulator on the fuel pump but im leaning toward the filter being reprimed.

You have to drain the water out of the fuel tank. There should be instructions on how to do that in your owner's manual. The sensor is in the tank. Hope this helps.

nothing special, its in the valley, probably have to remove the fuel bowl and the turbo pedastal to get access to it.
book value from navistar / ford is a 4 hour job.
