My 06 did this and was a bad wif sensor had dealer replace it no other problems ... The drain plug is on the frame rail right under the driver side door , Allen head . Best thing to do get the wif sensor check for corrosion which was my problem. It's a few dollars but get the fuel filters changed. Who's to say when the first owner had them changed injectors are not cheap , 400 plus for them . Good luck.

Get the updated plug for draining the water - it is all brass and will not get stuck from corrosion.

Knob style HFCM drain plug 6E7Z-9C082-A

If the WIF light is on constantly, you may beed to try blowing a cleaner (powderblast, carb cleaner, etc) into the drain hole. You will need to pre-bend the plasttic straw to a right angle to get it oriented where it will do the most good. If that doesn't work, then you will need a new HFCM manifold cover, which is not that expensive.

You can shop around and get Ford remanned injectors for close to $300 if it comes down to that.

If you need parts, use TousleyFordParts. Great on-line system and they will be very helpful over the phone of you need to talk to them. We can get you part mumbers for most things, so post up what you need if you want that kind of help.

As long as it is taken care of, you got a very good deal.
