Hi. Welcome to chat! My name is ***** ***** am currently dealer auto mechanic. I will attempt to assist you with your concern today.

Ask Your Own Ford Question

The fuel in the bowl will be warm as there is a heater in there. And actually that is what is common to blow the fuse. You could unplug the heater connector and see if the fuse will still blow to try and verify. Note the wiring to the connector can also case the fuse to blow if it is shorting on the fuel housing, etc...

I'm at work right now, if by unplugging the fuel heater stops blowing the fuses what would you check next ? THANK'S

If you unplug the fuel heater and the fuse stops blowing, then replace the fuel heater.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
