Problem with 2008 dodge one ton with 5.9 motor. Customer

Customer Question
dropped off truck with one...
Problem with 2008 dodge one ton with 5.9 motor. Customer dropped off truck with one piston melted due to injector failure and an additional injector was failing also. Motor was re-ringed and new pistons installed. Two rebuilt injectors from Oreilly's were also installed. But,they didn't work and were returned and exchanged for two more rebuilt injectors that functioned but also caused blue smoke from exhaust. Those last injectors were removed and taken back to Oreillys. Now after we installed these two we are getting a code"fuel delivery error" and the truck will start and then die at exactly 10 seconds every time. At least with the first bad fuel injectors the motor would run and we could road test.Any ideas on what happening?

good afternoon my name is ***** ***** I will assist

first, I would get rid of the aftermarket injectors and get OEM from the dealer. the rebuilds have a high rate of failure from the start.

I would check the lift pump to be sure you have sufficient pressure to the pump.

I know that rebuilds are junk. And always advise on Bosch rebuilds for Dodge or Duramax or Ford for Powerstroke. I already advised customer to do that and they refused. They would rather pay me to keep installing 200.00 crap from oreillys
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I opened the drain valve on fuel filter and bumped motor to check lift pump was still working.
Dodge Mechanic: roy, import/domestic specialest replied 1 year ago

ok, if the pump is working then it sounds like one of the injectors is leaking down causing low fuel pressure.

Low fuel pressure caused by a leaking injector is causing this motor to start and run exactly for 10 seconds and then die everytime? Before I changed these two injectors last time the motor ran until I would shut it off,,just had blue smoke
Dodge Mechanic: roy, import/domestic specialest replied 1 year ago

the key is the 2 o reilly injectors they may be causing this issue

I am going to try canceling the injectors at the rail to see if pressure stays up
Dodge Mechanic: roy, import/domestic specialest replied 1 year ago

if they are leaking, that will not be an accurate test

what is a accurate test?
Dodge Mechanic: roy, import/domestic specialest replied 1 year ago

do you have a fuel pressure gauge that you can monitor the fuel pressure???

Roy

I have a scan tool that can monitor rail pressure.
Dodge Mechanic: roy, import/domestic specialest replied 1 year ago

thats looking at the pressure up to the pump. you need to monitor the pressure right at the injectors

what tool do I use for doing that? And where do they sell it?
Dodge Mechanic: roy, import/domestic specialest replied 1 year ago

snap on, mac make diesel fuel pressure testers. I use the snap on, pricy but works well. you need to isolate the injectors

Is a bad lift pump really gonna cause this type of run and die problem? I thought that this was a vacuum draw system similar to fuel system on GM Duramax and that the lift pump was just to get it started.
Dodge Mechanic: roy, import/domestic specialest replied 1 year ago

not looking at the lift pump. that just supplies the injector pump with fuel.
