How's it going guys?

This is my first diesel and the first problem I've had with it so I'm reaching out for a little help.

The truck idles and starts completely fine, even after it dies. It's not throwing any codes. The only problems I have found is that there is fuel in the valley and my fuel filter restriction sensor drips some fuel.

The first time it happened I had to merge onto an on-ramp pretty hard, I then came off the throttle to roll through a toll booth and it died. I had about a 1/4 tank of fuel, maybe a little less, so I thought I just caught some air from the fuel tank. Made it the rest of the way home without issue except I had a touch of a lopey idle. Put fuel in the truck and everything was normal again.

Second time it happened I turned right from a stop sign and got into the throttle a little bit because I was in a hurry, came off the throttle to roll up to another stop sign and it died. I blew a rusty brake line coming from the hydraulic unit from mashing the pedal to get stopped in time.

Truck sat for 2 days before I found the time to bend the new brake line, install it and bleed the brakes. Road testing the brakes is when it started sputtering/chugging when coming to complete stops from cruising speed.

I can make the truck act up if I accelerate to 2k rpm from a dead stop and then let off the throttle. It'll either sputter with a little white smoke or completely cut out.

I've replaced the CPS and inspected all my UVCH with everything looking ok.

The high pressure side of the fuel pump might be going out.

Have you checked the fuel pressure yet?
