A 2006 Yamaha Waverunner. Its starts but will not run. Believe it may be fuel filter needs cleaning or replaing or the water seperator with vauuum line is clogged. Cannot find the fueld filter? It sat over winter was not winterized. Drained fuel, put new fuel in ot and started right up took on water and it diet after 3 minutes at sea. Again it will fire up nbut not stay running.

The fuel pump in the tank, is the only filter on the fuel! It pumps directly into the fuel manifold for the fuel injectors. You have already cleaned the vent canister on the fule tank?

No is that the small wtite cannister on top of tank with a hose marked vent from one side? Do I just screw off bottom of it to clean it? Will it spill out fuel when I do?
Expert:  koboma replied 3 months ago.

It should not have fuel in it/ It is there to keep water from getting into the tank.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Is it at simple as screwing off the bottom, cleaning it and screwing it back on? By hand or pliers?
