is it a gas or dsl engine, if its a dsl engine there might be a drain on the bottom of the fuel filter just open it till it does not run clear....water is going to settle to the bottom so it will drain first....then it will get darker when its all dsl fuel Try this at your own risk. But I was told buy alot of old timers that you can pour 1 (16oz.) bottle of common rubbing alcohol in your tank and the gas will mix with the alcohol and burn it eventually. Tried it and it worked on my 1994 Dodge Ram 1500 with a 5.2 (318) engine. Hope this helps...

It means that the fuel in gasoline station was mixed with water or water somehow got in gasoline stations or your cars fuel tank.

The filter is a fuel separator.

My 95 Hyundai elantra just stop running well i was driving and oil light came on i think it's something to do with fuel pump or fuel relay could this be right?

If the oil light came on before the engine died then, no. The Oil Light is not an indication of the fuel pump or relay. The Oil Light comes on when the oil preasure drops too low, which can happen when the oil pump goes out, the oil passages are restricted or the vehicle is too low on oil. If the Oil Light came on when the motor died or shortly after, that is normal, because the motor stopped running, thus stopping the oil pump. If your oil light came on well before the motor died, then either you were about out of oil or the oil pump quit...... AND if that happened and then your engine died..... you're looking at replacing/rebuilding the engine.
