7.3 Fuel bowl Heating element

Hi everyone,

This is my 1st post......... I can almost here some of you grown... Sorry.

After doing several key word searches I thought it might be better to just ask my 1st question.

I have a 2000 7.3 & was wondering how to check whether my internal fuel heating element under the filter is working. I did some quick & dirty home garage diagnostics but it seems like it should be heating up in the "Key On" position, but it isn't.(temp check via thermal laser Detector) Is this normal? I did check for power at the Leads which connect to the bowl & my test light lit at "Key On" so it seems it's getting power.

Any help would be great as the temps are in the single digits here in Rochester NY.

Thanks, Mr.H

There is a thermostat on the side of the bowl. That black thingy. So it won't necessary fire up with the key on. You can pull the heating unit and do a continuity check. I wouldn't get concerned about it. Usually if there is a problem with the heater, it is a internal short. You will know when that happens, believe me.
