Your car should be equiped with a fuel filter water seperator.
Diesel fuel and water do not readily mix, fuel does tend to entrap moisture from the air each time it is moved from one container to another. Eventually every Diesel fuel system collects enough water to become a potential hazard. Fortunately, when it's allowed to settle out, the water will always drop to the bottom of the tank or filter housing. Some Diesel fuel filters are equipped with a water drain; a bolt or petcock at the bottom of the housing.
If the filter is equipped with a water drain at the bottom, place a pan under the drain to catch the water and fuel.
If equipped, loosen the vent bolt on the filter base. If there is no vent, loosen the return line at the pump (the line not connected to the filter).
Loosen the bolt or valve. When fuel flows in a clean stream, close the drain and tighten the vent or return line.
On most diesel fuel filters, a water drain screw (bottom) is provided for bleeding any accumulated water from the fuel system
here is the fuel system component you requested.
