Did you remove the cap, it will cause a vacuum and not let it drain.

BFH, just kidding. I would think you might have to tap GENTLY on it as you are turning it.

well i got it to drain out, but my water in fuel light is still on?

any suguestions?

i thought this would help it, at least that is what i was told..
and btw the fuel filter i took out of that damn thing was FILITHY there was chunks of mud in the bottom of it, i did my best to get it out but there was a little peice of wire thin wire around the bottom of it, and it came lose while i was trying to clean it there is still some mud around the very bottom but i cant get to it, what would you reccomend doing next, with the filter being as dirty and all the mud around it, id like to know it any problems may come from it other than dirty injectors?

heres a picture of the filter

as you can see in this picture the mud that was around the bowl that was a chunk of it

That little wire that came apart was probably your fuel bowl heater. If you have a no start problem in the future... check the fuse for that fuel bowl heater.
