trouble, no excuses

well it is BP's fault for the green handle being Regular! WTF, green is diesel everywhere in the world! I'm humbled......a little.
So after 70 miles of 50/50 Diesel/regular the truck just quit. I drained everything, changed everything, now Im getting codes:
P0087
P1260
P2291
UO155?? The truck did start for 3-4 seconds twice,

I do not hear the fuel pump run when I hit the key, Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

PO087 = fuel rail pressure low, P1260 = theft detected, vehicle immobilized, P2291 = injector ctrl pressure too low engine cranking, UO155 = lost comm. w/instrument panel cluster control module. When PATS detects theft the fuel pump is shut off to immobilize vehicle. I would start with diagnosis of that code first.

thanks Greg.
I depressed the fuel kill switch- It didnt feel like it clicked or was sprung up.
Is there another switch somewhere?
I am getting air out of the valve when the key is on for like 20 seconds.
At first there was gas/diesel coming out in spits, now nothing but air.

i would try a different key to see if that helps. also i have you cleared the codes yet? do they all come back right away?

Do any of the warning lights work on the dash? maybe a failed instrument cluster? The cluster would need to be programmed if it is replaced

you said you drained everything, did you prime the fuel system before restarting?

you said you I are "getting air out of the valve when the key is on for like 20 seconds. At first there was gas/diesel coming out in spits, now nothing but air."
what valve are you talking about? the water separator?

diesel might be green most places but i am pretty sure there is No set color for pump handles. if this was BP's fault i would make them pay for the repairs...

Ah, actual color for diesel pump handles is usually yellow. Same with diesel jerry cans. Although that is really a generalization.

The air valve on top of the engine, next to the fuel bowl on the fuel cooler.....cant think of the name right now. It looks like a regular air stem.

These may help:

http://wpnet.us/Fuel_System_Bleeding_LP.pdf
http://wpnet.us/Fuel_System_Bleeding_HP.pdf

Don't even try to crank the engine until you get all the air out of the LP side, then bleed the HP side. The procedure shows a special tool for the HP with a drain line, but you can get by just cracking the bolt and catching fuel with a rag. It's diesel after all and a cold engine so there isn't much fire risk.

In Canada, down here it is green.

Sounds like the low pressure pump may be shot (P87 and you can't hear it run), it is an easy fix and a $350 part anywhere but the dealer, it is over $500 from Ford. When the low pump craps out the truck will not start to try and save your HPFP so quit trying to start it and get the fuel figured out first, when the HPFP goes you can be looking at $10K+.

I'd stick with OEM since a consistent "charge" supply pressure to the HPFP is critical and inadequate supply could damage the HPFP.
