Did you also get black smoke out of the exhaust when the loss of power occured?

Mine was doing the same thing. Ended up being EGR valve staying open. Got it changed, now the same thing is happening again. I read that shtuff can accumulate in the pipes and clog even a brand new valve. I have to bring mine in again.
