Internal Fuel Heater

A couple weeks ago i was driving when i thought i tripped a code in my truck, i pulled over and tried re setting everything but that didnt work. I then found out i blew a maxi fuse and it was because of my internal fuel heater... i thought there was only an external one, but apparently this interal fuel heater goes out on the 97's a lot. i didnt know about that untill it happened to me

fuel heater

there is a fuel heating element located in the bottom of the fuel bowl.

drain the fuel from bowl, use a crow foot on ext. it may be reverse thread so be careful

simple , cheap fix
