Water In Fuel
1996 F250 7.3 TD
The first time this occurred, I had just switched tanks, I drained the fuel filter/water separator (very little actually drained), and the water in fuel light went out until I made a right turn. I bring it to the garage, they replace the filter, and the problem is gone.
The second time (yesterday) it occurred again when I switched tanks but this time when I drain the fuel filter/water separator nothing drained, So I open the drain and start the engine (what a mess) the water in fuel light goes off and again only comes on when I make a right turn. Therefore, I assume I have to replace the fuel filter again.
I think I need to find a new source of fuel
Why does the light come on only when I make a right turn?
Is it normal to have to change the fuel filter every time this happens?
Is this a situation where an OEM filter would be best?
