Drain Water Separator???

Ok I am sorry I know this have been covered extensively but I still have a few questions. I got the warning light the other day. This is the first F250 I have had so I tried to drain it and nothing came out. I took it in and got the oil changed, oil filters and fuel filters. Then the light came on again I tried to drain again and then it started just dripping. I don't know how long to let it drip so I left it for about 20 seconds, it never got to a steady stream. The light came back on. Should I let it drain until I see a steady stream? Is there anyway that I should clean this?

It is 09 6.4 with 45k miles on it.

Thanks,

Jason

Were you on level ground with your engine off? Engine Has to be off on that particular model and it will stop draining once all water is drained.

Thanks for the reply, I was not on level ground. Tonight I did it with the front of my truck on a slight downgrade. I drained for almost 10 minutes. It drained out in a steady stream at first and then just started dripping. I looked at the bottle when I was done and there was about a quarter size amount of water in the sample. If you said that it will stop draining when all the water is out then I don't know if I get it all. After looking at the sample I was pretty confident that I did. I guess I will know if the light comes back on.

Its quite possible your drain is blocked due to buildup. A poking device will help make a drain path.

I think i said that right. Water and fuel will drain out of the HFCM water drain.
