Water seperator drain help

While attempting to change my fuel filters yesterday, I opened the water seperator drain vlave and the fuel did not stop draining out. This has not happened to me before. Usually only about a half quart drained, but yesterday I closed it after about a gallon and a half. Has any of you had this happen before? Will I have to bring it in the the dealer to check it out?

Mine has done that from day one. I dont let that much drain out, but it has never stopped draining or slowed down. The most I let drain out is maybe 12 ounces.

Just make sure your fuel tank is fairly empty when you change filters, like 1/3 tank or less.
Mine usually just drains a cup or two, but I have had it keep on draining when I tried to do it with close to a full tank of fuel.

truck will not start after fuel filter change and new wif sensor

I think my truck was in limp mode cuz the wrench light was on. Great loss in power and the wife light was on so I changed out both filters. New sensor cleaned out the water in fuel separator. Which was full of crap. And now truck wont start. The first. Time I started to start it it fired right up then died. Haven't got it to start since.
