6.4 Water in the Fuel...Is there a way to purge the system???

So I filled up on the way back from Maine.... Got on the Highway in about 5 miles got the "drain water seperator" indication on the dash....

Pulled over drained it... Got on the highway in about 5 miles got it again.... Couldn't pull off for 15 min... The truck started to lope and surge.... Then died...

I drained the water seperator... But the truck would not restart...

Have since dropped the tank... polished the fuel with a marine fuel polishing system.. Changed the filters. Cleaned out both filter housings spotless... the truck will now idle but when shut off will not restart without a shot of starting fluid....

Does anyone know if there is a way to purge the system, fuel rail, injectors ect???

Not to happy about the possibilty of taking it to the dealer to have them pull off the cab to replace or check the injectors......

Suggestions????

it stood there for 3 before they touched it, i just got off the phone with them they changed 8 injectors and the hpfp. still had 1 injector leaking. Ford made them change all eight injectors that they just replaced. Just taking way to long. Might have it back today they said.

Have they covered the HPFP under the warranty? Or does the water void this?
