Don't let water ruin your common rail vehicles

Posted on 6/7/2016 10:08:32 AM

In a common rail fuel system,water is the most damaging fuel contaminant which will cause a lack of lubrication in the fuel system,resulting in prematurely wear your high pressure pump and injectors.

For common rail vehicles,the high quality fuel will decide the performance of high pressure pump and injectors.If there is any water contamination,the rate of failure from them will increasing a lot.

OPTIONS FOR WATER IN FUEL PREVENTION
There is really no way to filter water, it can possibly be seperated but not filtered.A secondary filter in our opinion would restrict the fuel flow in your engine and is not something we recommend. 

Preventative warning systems for water are the option that we believe is most effective however it is not a set and forget device. 

Here diesel injection parts specialist - China Balin Parts Plant,will introduce you a waterscan kit, something you could use to try and combat water related failures in your common rail fuel system – it alerts you via a light or buzzer on your dash when it detects water is present in  your fuel. 

THE MOST COMMON FAILURE SYMPTOMS FROM WATER CONTAMINATION
1.Vehicle cuts out altogether – stops dead
2.Vehicle runs rough
3.Blowing excessive smoke 
4.Presents with high pressure leak codes
5.Vehicle goes into limp mode

WHEN OR IF THE LIGHT/BUZZER GOES OFF  - THIS IS THE BIT WHERE YOU COME IN! 
1.Stop your car immediately (even a small amount of water in the fuel system can do huge damage) 
2.Drain the water from the waterscan unit using the drain plug on the bottom of the unit. 
3.Once drained and plug and been reinstalled, prime fuel system using factory primer pump to start the vehicle 
4.If water has been collected you should look at draining / cleaning your fuel tanks and getting your fuel system checked.
