    Default fuel filter water draining 2.0DTi

    This is my first post so here we go. I attempted to drain the water from my fuel filter as it says it should be done yearly and as soon as I opened the drain valve at the bottom it seemed to be drawing air in. I closed it immediatly and my car is running fine. Does anyone out there know if this should happen? I've got a vectra 2.0 DTi (Y20DTH engine) on a 52 plate. Thanks

    actually got round to it this weekend. It did draw a bit of air in but was OK. Took a few attempts to start the car though. Cheers for the advise

    On my 2.0DTi veccy it is on the right side of the radiator water bottle when viewed from the front of the car. It's a black thing with 2 fuel lines going to it (Well, I assume one goes to it and one from it!).
