Draining Water From The System


See Figure 1

If the filter warning light illuminates and a chime sounds (on models so equipped) while the engine is running, drain any water that is in the fuel filter.

  1. Disconnect the harness connector at the bottom of the fuel filter assembly.
  3. Place a container under the fuel filter, then loosen the draincock 4 or 5 turns to drain the water.

If the water does not drain sufficiently move the priming pump up and down.

  1. After draining the water completely, close the draincock and reconnect the harness connector.
  3. Bleed the air from the fuel system, as previously outlined.
