Transit 1999 Smiley Face

Recommended Posts

Although primarily on here as I own a 1997 Escort Ghia, my camper van has a Transit base, so please could I pick the brains of you good Transit owners.

On a long run recently the water in fuel light came on intermittently while going up hill, it was raining heavily at the time, have tried to drain the filter as per manual but all that came out was a hiss of air, no water or fuel, is this normal as I was expecting a little water followed by some diesel

Yes only on an incline, and it did not stay on, just a couple of seconds every now and then
