p0232 error code PLEASE HELP

I have a 09 6.4 with 55k on it. Follow the sever maintenance schedule and do not run her to hard, DPF delete and mini max. Yesterday I was cruising about 45 when the engine shut down. Once pulled over I tried to restart her a couple times with no luck, it would turn over but not fire. then after a couple times she would not even turn over, just nothing....The only other thing I can tell you is I checked the fuel separator and there was fuel coming out of it. The fuel pump inside the tank is making a very odd noise like it may be fubar. I called H & S and they were great assisting me in clearing the codes and trying to troubleshoot it on the side of the road until a tow arrived. What next????? Need Help PLEASE.....

With fuel pump making noise I would check fuel pressure first. Not sure what it is supposed to be.

No there is not a fuel pump inside the tank. The lift pump is on the drivers side frame rail toward the front of the truck.

Ok. My mechanic called me today and said the truck is running great. When I picked it up he said there is a fuel leak somewhere on the low pressure fuel pump. This leak has pushed fuel into the electrical connectors for the wif sensor and fuel pump causing the fuel pump to not have a good electrical connection. Once he cleaned the electrical connections all was well. Makes sense to me.
Now the kicker is he was unable to find the source of the leak. Before he cleaned the pump off he showed me how dirty everything was from the fuel. Not good.... We then cleaned everything off and I drove it around a bunch. When I got home I crawled up under the truck and noticed a drip of diesel coming out of the wif sensor, like the o ring seal may be bad.
I am sure I got this one figured out but has anyone experienced this before???

I recall from replacing my WIF Sensor, there is a certain way the sensor needs to be inserted back into the pump, it did not go easy either. Maybe the mechanic took it out to clean it and it was not fully seated once he replaced it.

Yes, it is a pretty simple job. If you have pick up the sensor from ford it comes with a set of instructions. However, I would be absolutely sure that your mechanic got all of the gunk cleaned out of the pump. When you remove the screws holding on the front plate, you can access all "levels" inside of the pump. I could have easily filled up a "1 cup measuring cup" with all of the jelly/sand/and gunk that came from mine. It was pretty nasty. When you go to do this job, make sure your fuel level is below where the pump sits, maybe less than half a tank or so. I parked on a slight incline too. Otherwise once you open the pump fuel will never want to stop pouring out. Let me know if you have any specific questions. The sensor install itself is pretty much just: Drain fuel out of pump/lines though yellow pet****, unplug sensor, use pliers to rotate and extract from pump, install new sensor in same manner making sure it seals properly, plug back in, turn key on and let sit for 30 seconds turn key off, do this 6 times before trying to start to make sure you get all of the air out of the lines.
