need help bad... the mechanic is stumped....

I have a 05 f250 6.0 with 53,000 miles on it... the other day i was on the 4 lane and drive good, all of a sudden it just lost power (but didnt die).. a few days later it died and wouldnt start, so i changed fuel filters and air filter, all not that dirty.. still nothing... i got it started and was running great, got up to normal running temp, and i shut it off and tried to start it back and nothing... it starts cold and dies when it gets warm... the mechanic pulled a few codes and said he fixed it, he drove it all day while i was at work and ran great, i go that evening to get it and i make it 100 feet down the road and it does the same thing, dead... they have done fuel pressure test, its good.. dropped the tank, clean as a babies butt... funny thing is while the fuel test equipment is hooked up it runs great, take it off and i get in it goes ****ty.... please help, i really need help its breaking me up... i am going crazy..

My money is on P2290 and P2291 ICP too low/while cranking are at least one of them. Is this YOUR mechanic or a dealer mechanic? With only 53,000 miles on it, this repair should be covered under warranty unless your warranty in-service date is before Feb. of 2005.

If you don't mind posting your VIN I can check to see what exactly has been done under warranty.
