fuel filter frozen???


[img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shrug.gif[/img]
Hello everyone,

after siting outside overnight at about - 15 Celsius, it started OK, let it runing while unpluging the heater cord, and I have seen tons of fuel leaking.Stoped the engine,and found out after hours of checking that was the fuel filter,but not sure where exactly,because was no way to keep it running and stay closer than few yards.Changed the filter,everything seems OK,looking forward to the winter....Few facts: filter changed about 3000 km ago,no sign of water in fuel,filter top plastic thing looks a bit funny,not sure how it is supposed to look.Any suggestions why this happened? thank you

Re: fuel filter frozen???

replace the o-rings on the water drain valve located on the back of the fuel bowl. These have been giving everyone problems lately. While you are at it change all the seals on the ends of the 4 fuel lines leading into the fuel bowl. If you purchase the seal kit from the dealer you will get all the seals in one pack for around $24 US.
