Default 6.5 won't start HELP!!

Iwas driving down the highway . The engine sputtered like I run out of fuel. It felt like it stalled but it didn't. this happened twice. The third time it happened it stalled and will not start. Several times in the past 3 weeks it sputtered very briefly but never stalled. 2days prior to this I replaced leaking fuel injector return lines on right [turbo] side . Code reader found code P1216 fuel solenoid response time to slow. Is there a way to test the solenoid? sould I replace the selenoid?
I know it sounds like the PMD but before spending big bucks on a pmd I want to be shore that is the problem.

Check the LP..you should hear it come on when you turn the key, it's just under your feet on the frame.

Bout the only test for the solenoid is a "click" sound wit 12v applied.

So did the pmd go that quick, without any warning what so ever? I carry a spare one with me also.
