Question 08 F550 no start

so about a week ago i replaced the high pressure fuel pump and injectors on a 6.4 do to high amounts of metal shavings i found while replacing the fuel filter and a code that came up after it came in with a lack of power complaint i believe the code was a p0088 or something close to that now the truck is back together after the cab was removed i bled the fuel system and the truck fired right up after roughly 6 to 8 mins of idling the truck shut off and will not refire the wrench light comes on and the code that pops up is a p2291 fuel rail pressure too low i talked to a local ford tech and he told me it was the frp sensor so after a few more hours and some more money the truck still wont start any ideas out there im stuck scratching my head

Pull the fuel filters again and have a look.

Make sure they are on all the way. No threads showing.

Also bleed all the air out. You can do that by just turning the key to the on position and listening for the low pressure pump.

When the pump shuts off (about 30 seconds) turn the key off and then repeat.

Do this at least 6 times.

Also check your fuel cutoff switch and make sure it is not tripped. It is on the passenger side of the dash. Just right there on the side when you open the door.

Yeah me too...

You buy a part, think it's good off the shelf and come to find out, it's bad or was damaged while shipping.
