1. Get FORScan scanning software for Fords (free) and an OBDII reader.

2. DO NOT throw parts at it . . . if you must, then make them Motorcraft parts. 7.3s are quite particular about their sensors.

3. Come back with the codes. Lots and lots of smart people here!

P2285 Injector Control Pressure Sensor Circuit Low
OBD-II Trouble Code Technical Description Article by John Ingalls

This is a generic powertrain diagnostic trouble code (DTC) and applies to many OBD-II vehicles (1996-newer).Although generic, the exact repair steps may vary depending on year, make, model and powertrain configuration.

OBD-II trouble code P2285 and related ICP codes P2283, P2284, P2286, and P2287 are associated with the injector control pressure (ICP) sensor circuit. This circuit is normally monitored by the Power Control Module (PCM) on most vehicles.

The purpose of the injector control pressure sensor circuit is to provide a feedback signal to indicate fuel rail pressure so that the PCM can correct injector timing and the injection control pressure for proper fuel delivery at all speeds and varying load conditions. This process incorporates several components to accomplish, based on the vehicle and the fuel supply system configuration. Many modern diesel engines utilize an injector driver module (in conjunction with the PCM) to facilitate fuel and oil delivery to the injectors for each individual cylinder of the engine. When the PCM detects voltage or resistance that is lower than the expected range within the injector control pressure ICP sensor circuit, code P2285 will be set and the check engine light will be illuminated

I have a 2006 F250 6.0 , That's been to a couple different shops with no luck at all .
I am going to start at the beginning so I have this straight. You have taken it to a couple different shops with no luck. Why would you then go to your buddy's scanner?

First things was all my problems started after we switch the oil cooler.
You swapped the oil cooler - why?
Does the new one leak any?
Did you have to disconnect any wiring to get to it?

After that I kept getting a ICP code so I switched it and the pigtail as well .
The code refers to quite a lot. You switched out the ICP, but if there is a problem with the circuit serving it, you will still have that code. Why did you switch the pigtail? Was it broken?
So then I started to notice when I left for work after about driving 5-10 miles it would fall flat on its face . No smoke at all or engine light . I could pull over turn the truck off for litterly 15 seconds . Start it right back up and it wouldn't act up again till the next morning . After a few days it kept getting worse till finally it just quit on the highway ,After letting it cool off some it made it home
Since "all this" happened after you replaced the oil cooler, I would start with that. Did sealant get into a passage? Is the ICP really reporting the correct pressure? Is something wrong with the part you replaced? Trace back all the circuits that feed the ICP. FORScan could really be your friend in this.
Yes its my buddys scanner from snap on , I forget the number nut it was a icp code 2285 I think he i remember right
Ummmm . . . . see again my post above.

Yes.

Here is a YouTube video -- check the voltage of your sensor.
