You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.

On the front tank do you see any visual leak anywhere? When you turn the key on does the water in fuel light come on? Usually if the light comes on when you turn the key on then the light bulb is good. If this is the case the water in fuel light indicator is likely bad inside of the fuel filter housing.
