    I have a 95 chevy with a 6.5 diesel turbo in it. I am from WI and I took it down to FL this summer for a job. When I got down there the light water in fuel came on. I had the fuel filter changed but the light still comes on. on are first cold day here the truck kept on running out of fuel and would only run for about 2 mins. somebody told me to put rubbing alcohol in the fuel. What should I do. It runs fine when it is warm out. Thanks in advance!!

    Open the water seperator valve on the front of the motor with the engine running and drain the water. Do not put alchohol in the fuel.
