When it was running if I would give to much throttle if would load up blow out lots of black smoke then die, but would start right back up.

Hello my name is Scott

Some of the things we see when this happens after this repair is a chunk of carbon holds the EGR valve open and will cause black smoke. As far a not starting we see dirt gets into the IPR valve sticking it open causing a crank no start. Checking the IPR screen for damage and replacement is necessary.

Real common after this repair as any spec of dirt can get into the ipr valve.
