There are several causes to this overlapping symptom but my '06 6.0 began doing that until it finally wouldn't start at all.
What worked for my situation...I ended up buying a new power supply board for the FICM (Fuel Injector Control Module) on *bay for $80 and replacing it myself. Dealer quoted $1200.
DISCLAIMER...you will void the majority of any warranties you might have by doing this.
This link will give you an idea where to start to determine if this might be your problem...

Before I went this route, I removed and replaces both fuel filters and cleaned out the fuel pump, cleaned EGR, and every other little thing I could think of.

I will be glad to try to find an answer to any questions you might have. Good luck!

SOURCE: FUEL PRESSURE DROPS WHEN PUMP STOPS.HARD TO START

The fuel pressure check valve in the electric fuel pump has failed, you will have to replace the fuel pump, it is in the gas tank, also replace the filter at the same time or the warranty on the new pump will be voided.

SOURCE: low oil pressure

usually that could mean a failing oil pump....or a clogged pickup in the oil pan, could also mean you have a leak somewhere. the car shutsoff because it protects itself from killn itself

SOURCE: ford f450 6.4-high pressure fuel pump failure

I would like to clarify, and somewhat solve this issue. First of all the dealer is right about the regen. If the truck is going into regen and did not finish, then it will do the regen again and again and this excessive regen will cause fuel in the oil. Unfortunatly Ford did not add a parked Regen switch (too complicated for some users) so you will have to drive untill the regen light goes out. I know it's inconventant but that's part of the hassel you need to go through because Al Gore invented the internet and then warned us all about global warming. Anyway there are some other causes including porous cylander heads (this will show up in low mileage vehicles only), HP Fuel pumps, fuel sensors, injectors, lines, etc. etc. Since you both seem to have low mileage ask the Ford Dealer about the porous cyl heads and watch his face go blank. Is smoke comes out of his ears make sure his DPF isn't clogged and ask him if he needs to Regen. then tell him he has to run 30 mintues weither he likes it or not or he will get fuel in his oil. By the way you may also need to ask about an updated ECM reflash which could help this issue. Have a nice day.

SOURCE: 97 7.3L powerstroke wont start?

Checking and cleaning the battery and conections at the battery and starrter not forgetting the all impotant grounds is a must at first. slow cranking do to bad battery's or conections is a common cause witch will allso decrease the effectiveness of the glow plugs. Allso the glow plugs of this truck do have a problem of going out so a new set wouldn't hurt the other thing to know about this truck is that the light indecater is just a recomendation the plugs themselves will stay on for around two minutes so a delaid start ten to twenty seconds prior couldn't hurt and will help the enitial cold start. Other known hard start problems for this rig consist of worn fuel pump, bad glow plug relay, or high oil presure sender. I allso would refrain from using either by pluging the truck in tell you can find the problem.

1998 ford explorer oil pressure

Knocking in engine and low oil pressure usually means bad main bearings. May have been caused by bad oil pump or just worn out bearings due to high mileage. If this is problem needs engine or rebuild old engine.

My low oil light comes on while trying to crank my car and car stalls; will not start until I keep trying a couple of times. After it starts it runs fine and then shuts off after backfiring sometimes and...

LOW OIL PRESSURE WILL CAUSE OIL PRESSURE SWITCH OR SENDING UNIT TO DISABLE FUEL PUMP.CHECK FOR OIL PRESSURE.REMOVE OIL PRESSURE SENDING UNIT SCREW IN OIL PRESSURE GAUGE TESTER INTO BLOCK WHERE OIL PRESSURE SENDING UNIT GOES TURN ENGINE OVER CHECK FOR OIL PRESSURE SHOULD BE 18 PSI @ 2000 RPM. BESURE TO WRAP TEFLON PLUMBERS TAPE AROUND THREADS TO THE OIL GAUGE PRESSURE TESTER OIL WILL SPRAY EVERY WHERE.IF YOU ARE GETTING NO OIL PRESSURE.YOUR OIL PUMP FAULTY.YOUR ENGINE CRANKSHAFT BEARINGS WORN OUT.WORN DAMAGED CAMSHAFT OIL PUMP DRIVE GEAR OR OIL PUMP DRIVE ROD DAMAGED OR BROKEN.

I have an 1996 f250 powerstroke and it is running rough.

The most common problem is a bad fuel injector but if you haven't already done so--check to make sure your oil level is all the way up to full.Power Strokes use a high pressure oil pump to operate their injectors and if your oil is at a low level it can cause air pockets in the lines going to the injectors.It's not a real common problem but I 've seen it happen maybe 10 times.Another cause is using the wrong kind of oil.Some oils have a tendency to foam at high pressures and can produce air in those same injector supply lines. Good luck!

I have a h1 hummer that will not start i have changed the glow plugs and the controler also the box on the injecter pump. I am geting fuel and the glow plugs are working. The hummer has set for a year....

Diesel fuel doesn't go bad like gasoline, at least not as fast. I've been around diesels in construction equipment and sometime a machine will sit for a couple years and still start right up. You have other problems. I don't know that much about the Hummer diesels but, Ford uses a high pressure oil pump to fire the injectors. The main oil pump supplies oil to the high pressure oil pump reservoir and then the high pressure pump supplies oil to the injectors. If Hummer uses a similar system the reservoir may have drained down and there is no oil for the high pressure pump to pump. Ford has plug where a person can fill that reservoir manualy if necessary. Maybe try cranking it some more, don't crank it more than 10-15 seconds at a time. Walk away from it for 10 minutes or so, then try again, make sure you let the glow plugs cycle. If it don't start after a half dozen tries, you may have to have a mechanic look at it. I'm sorry I can't be more help.

04 f250 diesel cranks but won't start

this is an oil pressure problem, either a sensor is not sensing enough oil pressure, or the high pressure pump is not building enough pressure(possibly leaking or head is leaking). this engine requires 450 psi minimum oil pressure at the injectors to actuate the injectors.

Put new glow plugs in ran fine for 1 day now it wont start..

You may want to surf around on some of the powerstroke forums for detailed answers, but I know the powerstrokes use oil pressure to control the injectors so you may have some problems with the high pressure oil pump.
Again, it is just a guess. I just wanted to point you to some of the Ford Powerstroke forums which may be of much more help for you.
Good luck..

2003 F-250 powerstroke

Could be one of many things:

-Clogged fuel filter
-Leaking fuel line
-Bad fuel pump
-High or low oil level
-Overdue oil change (Will explain both these possible causes later)
-Bad high pressure oil pump, ICP sensor (injection control pressure sensor), ICR (injection control pressure regulator), or bad HEUI injectors, or oil lines
-Leak in the high pressure oil system (unlikely because you would have noticed this... This does not go undetected as the underside of your vehicle would be literally covered in oil and dripping in a very short period of time after the leak develops)
(Powerstroke engines use a HEUI fuel injection system, "Hydraulically actuated/electronically controlled unit injection", which relies on a high pressure hydraulic pump that uses engine crankcase oil and pumps it at high pressure (500 psi or so). This oil is sent to your fuel injectors to provide means for actuating them and pressurizing the fuel into the cylinders. High or low engine oil level, or old, diluted, additive depleted oil will cause this system to aerate the oil and result in poor fuel injection capabilities)

There might be other causes but this is the Powerstroke`s weak point... The HEUI system was first designed by Caterpillar, which makes a lot of excellent/bulletproof HEUI based engines, both in passenger vehicle and heavy trucks and equipment. The Powerstroke is an engine designed and made by International Truck and Engine, which cannot seem to make a HEUI engine, in any market, whether passenger, heavy truck, or equipment that does not suffer from fuel injection issues.
