My car has an automatic transmission.
The fuel filter sensor is telling you that there is water in the fuel filter. If excess water gets in the fuel, you will experience a loss of power and running problems. The engine cannot run on water. If you don’t find water in the fuel filter then you should replace the fuel water sensor and the filter.
I suspect you have water and debris in the fuel. Take a fuel sample and let it sit and the water and fuel will separate. You may be surprised by the amount water that can get into the fuel. If you need help with this, have the vehicle diagnosed by a qualified mechanic who can perform these checks and fix your loss of power.
