P0087 & P2291

I tried to do a search but my phone won't let me and the website is blocked on my work computer. My friend is getting these codes. 2011 6.7 42,000 miles stock. Said he filled it up last night. Drove home then to work this morning. Died while he was driving on base today. Now won't start. Any ideas where to start. I only had time to go over there on lunch and pull the codes. So don't have any other info from what he said. He said he didn't see any dash warning lights. The guy that pulled him out of the road said there was a valve by the fuel pump on the rail to drain water. He said they drained a little water out of the fuel.
Codes are
P0087 fuel rail/system pressure - too low.
P2291 injector control pressure too low engine cranking.

How long ago did he change is fuel filters? some times when the filters are dirty you can get a low fuel rail pressure. Don't know where you live, but if the fuel starts gelling it causes a low rail pressure to. Mine did both.

He just got the truck so not sure how long ago the filters were changed. We are gonna try that. I was able to do a little research last night. If the filters don't work we were thinking of doing the low pressure pump next. Anyone know if the low pressure pump or sensors on the fuel rail are covered by the powertrain warranty. From what I read sounds like if it is the high pressure pump the won't cover it and say it was bad fuel. I'm in the south. Its 70 right now so gelling isn't an issue.

I killed my fuel pump on my 6.4 cause I forgot to change the filters for 25k. Bad choice.

We changed the filters and no luck. He took it to Ford the other day and they looked at it and said its rust in the fuel system. Needs a whole new one. $10841.00. He is talking to the place he got it from and seeing what they say. He got it about 2 months ago but I'm pretty sure it didn't have a warranty from them. Just the factory. So he may be picking up the bill.

Is there an aftermarket water separator that would stop this from happening again.

Get a quote from the dealer for just labor. It's supposed to book at approximately 17 hours so you should be looking at $1,700 +/- on the labor.

Then, order the kit that includes just about everything you need for $3,040 (Ford created the kit for simplicity on replacing the fuel system). You do need to request all parts back because there is a $1,500 core charge that you obviously will want refunded back.

You are at half of what the dealer is quoting. Dealers seem to be quoting the parts separately and then they just order the kit and bank a ton more money on parts and the customer has no clue.

Ford Parts - AutoNation Ford White Bear Lake Parts (previously Tousley Ford Parts)

The kit comes with all injectors, steel lines, return line/harness, fuel pump etc. It does not come with the DCFM or the fuel cooler assembly but they can be flushed.

Part number EC3Z-9B246-A

Yes there is an aftermarket fuel/water separator. Many have purchased and I haven't seen any bad reviews about it.

Does the cab have to be removed or is it something somebody with reasonable skills
can do in the driveway. (to replace the whole system)
