Fml fuel filters no start

So I did the fuel filters today, after my oil change, followed the write up about changing the lower, run the truck for 30 seconds change the top. Did all that jazz, cycled the key 10 times for 30 seconds. Crank it, she fires I'm happy but the happiness went away after 5 seconds. Dead, re did the cycling 5 times, each with the same result, fires then dies. Already did some reading, checked for codes, the code I got was injector control pressure too low-engine cranking #p2291. My FRP on my last attempt started out at 20psi and only built to 1143psi. I've read a few posts about bleeding the system from the strator valve... But don't know where that is... I checked the lower filter and there was fuel in it... I hadn't checked the top bc I feel like there won't be. If someone could post something about that strator valve and what not, many thanks....

I know others will chime in shortly but I believe it is on the front of the fuel cooler under the hood drivers side firewall.

Also been researching how to bleed it but I'm not sure where to get banjo bolts from...

I'm assuming it must be one of these? I watched a video on bleeding it but I don't have those fittings.... Any other way? Or is it ok to let the fuel spill over and just hit it with some brake cleaner once it's done?

Yup. In that pic, its the one up front. Can't help you with bleeding but you can take the fuel filter cap off and cycle the key until the bowl fills up almost full. Replace the cap and see if that helps purge the air.

I'll try that now, thanks. And since I've been waiting I went ahead and pulled both filters out, there was nothing in the lower one this time...

Well I'm about done messing with this thing, I took the lower filter back out to check placement for the 4th time, for sh*ts n giggles I cycled the key to see if anything would come out, of course nothing. I'll give it till later tonight but 8 am tomorrow morning off to ford, I don't have time to keep messing with it.
