Hello, when you are repriming the system i was wondering if your getting a lot of air out of the bleeder to the point it seems to be pressureized when first opening the bleeder. This would indicate the cup seals are leaking and putting combustion gasses into the common rail thus air into system. It would be advised to get a fuel pressure reading just so you can determine what happening. If its a gradual shut down or is it instant like turning the key off? that would lead you into an electrical isssue or mechnaical.
