He said the water in fuel message was back and that the truck was barely running.I plan on changing his fuel filters and draining the water from the system again tomorrow afternoon.
What could be some of the causes of this?Bad fuel,EGR cooler???Is there any way to dry the water out if it's in the fuel tank?
I've never had the problem with my 03 6.0 so this is all new to me.
Anytime you drain the seperator, catch the liquid and put it in a glass jar so you can see how much if any water is there. If there is little or none that would negate draining the tank and of course if there is a lot of water draining the tank and changing filters would be next step. If you put anything in the fuel,make certain it states on the product container"RECOMMENDED FOR DIESEL"regardless of what someone says will work. Fresh filters will often clear up unexplainable trouble.
