97ramsport1500 is on a distinguished road
Default Motor always dies and idles rough

Hi I have a 1997 Ram 1500 with the 5.9l Gas Engine. Recently installed a new fuel pump to fix the issues I was having with no power upon acceleration or going up hills, truck ran great afterwards and lasted about 20 mins, CEL came on, I ignored it, parked at a friends house, went out to start the truck but it wouldn't run, Computer read code P0118 - Engine Coolant Temp Circuit Voltage High. Waited over night turned key and ran good, then died again when I hit the brakes, tried to get it to start, finally did start after taking air cleaner off, put truck in gear, it died. Pushed it to my friends, we replaced the IAC and TPS and after replacing the TPS it ran good, and drove good for atleast 1 week, driving only 71 km costed me $120 in gas, now the truck will run, but when in idle I noticed it runs a bit rough, when you rev it, it puffs out black smoke (running rich) after driving it and parking it, it won't run anymore, when you get it running, it will run and go into gear if you keep your foot to the floor, as soon as you park it and its idling, the tiniest bit of throttle makes the motor die, but if you keep the throttle down it doesn't die.

Please help me out here....
