My water in fuel lights on now to, but it's after I washed it. I've for a flat bed on it so the cap is exposed...should I just drain the fuel filter and see if the light goes off?

That's a common thing. Just let it go and it'll be fine. Water getting in the sensor (from washing it) will throw it on too. Completely fine. Might as well try letting a bit out, but it's likely just got to dry out.

So the water isn't going to turn to steam and blow my injectors apart?

Nope, either just drive it until the light turns off or take the connector loose, clean well with WD-40 (WD stands for Water Dispersant), blow it out with compressed air, slap it back together and then drive it.

yup !!! happens to me now and again. I drain a bit of fuel to be sure, then clean the plug with some electric parts cleaner or even throttle body or brake cleaner spray. A good shot of compressed air and Bob is you fathers brother.

If you fill the plug in with dielectric grease, then put it together water has a hard time getting in, unless you pressure wash. NAPA Gold 3395 (Wix), is a good number for a no drain filter.

But what happens when water really gets in the fuel system...it doesn't hurt the injectors? This is an 09 6.7...I think the water in fuel is a bigger deal when your dealing with 26,000 psi at the fuel rail.

I'm pretty sure everybody assumed you were referring to a 12 valve. You posted in the 94-98 section. If it's a 6.7 I would probably try draining it out at least, but the same rules probably apply I'd imagine.
