Water in Fuel?

I was on my way home from training today, and when I was on the highway my truck turned off and flashed the "water in fuel" light. I pulled off to the side and my truck started right back up again and I took off and about 2 miles down the road it did it again. Once again started it up made it almost all the way home and it did it again. The “Water in Fuel" light only flash's for about a second before all power shuts off with it.

Would it be water in my fuel? Or could it be something else? And if it is my fuel what should I do? Thank you guys

Along the frame under the door there is a filter with a valve on it is for letting the water out.I would change both filters and drain.

Thanks man, I am going to get those changed because it's about time too, But the light hasn't come on since, must have been some bad fuel.

If yours is the 99-03 7.3L , your drain and filter housing will be on top the engine under the plastic shield (two 13mm nuts to remove). The drain valve is on the back side with yellow handle. See link at the end of my sig. for photos. The later model 6.0s have it in the frame.

I had that light come on in my truck every time I made a right turn, I changed the fuel filter and it went away.

I just realized that my truck is actually "he". What girl do you know likes to be stroked and blown?
