Okay, lets start over. I am personally guilty of all trouble shooting violations, which is why i'm telling you this. The few times I've been lucky with a guess reinforced bad behavior.
Trouble shooting 101:
Start with the easiest thing first. (filters, filter oring, air in the system, fuses)
Never trust the guy that came before you, you must TEST it yourself. He wasn't able to fix it in the first place.
In this case you are the guy, so this may be a hard pill to swallow. However did you test/check anything or just whip out ye ol parts cannon and fire away? If you did then maybe its time to just have her towed into the dealer.
This also means confirming there is a filter and oring properly installed in the DFCM that came out of the box, and that the pump is working.
90% of the time it boils down to human error. Again no offense, but have you been draining the water separator? Did some one fuel up with gas or DEF (I know you said its deleted, but remember trust no one)? On schedule with the filter changes? Primed the fuel system after opening any lines?
Start at the source Starting at the tank, it has uncontaminated fuel? Fuel in the filter housing when you open the drain? Bubbles in the tube running to a bucket from the lpfp? Metal/schmoo on the regulator? In the fuel rail? Power to the pump?
If you haven't checked these things then your chasing your own *** in a circle hoping to get lucky.
Seriously I wish you the best of luck and hope you get her fixed. I wouldn't have taken the time to post this to just be little you.
