Unless you have very large amount of water in the gas tank, it should not be an issue. Your vehicle is fuel-injected and F/I systems are very tolerant of water introduction. For minor amounts of water, use a gas-dryer (alcohol) such as HEET or Prestone Gas Dryer. For large amounts of water, drop the gas tank, dry it out, remove the fuel pump, replace the fuel pump screen (sock) and pump and reassemble. Be sure to purge the water (if there is any) out of the fuel line by releasing fuel from the service port fitting on the F/I hose once the vehicle has been reassembled. Mark--Raleigh, NC

Are you sure you're connecting to the low pressure line instead of the high pressure line? The low pressure line should have a blue or black dust cap on it, while the high pressure line should have a red dust cap on it.

Remove the top water line from the radiator to the water pump. The thermostat is found there.
