probably not module if it restarted within a minute of dying if it smokes black it is most likely fuel system related possibly fuel pressure rewgulater also check coolant level in radiater could also be vacuum leak check egr valve
Going on the information you have provided it sounds to me like the fuel pressure regulator.It is located unthe intake manifold and is a lenghty job to do and is exspensive to have done.If you have a good mechanical ability it can be done by yourself in about 4-5 hours.and cost about $100 bucks.
The first thing I would do since you think it was flooded is to replace the sparkplugs, sometimes if a spark plug has been washed out with gas you cannot get it completely dried out. After you replace sparkplugs try to start the engine. If the engine starts I would still recommend that you change your oil because of fuel saturation. If your engine fails to start I would suspect that you have a bad crankshaft position sensor as it is known to give problems. The crankshaft position sensor is located on the top of the transmission bell housing on the drivers side.
The engine is definitely in an over rich fuel condition if you are blowing black smoke. I would suspect a bad 02 sensor, but the flooding condition you describe at starting could be other things. I would check the codes and proceed from there.
Probably a good idea to change filter. Gas in oil due to attempted starts and flooding. Additives will draw out water and make white smoke. Been there, seen it. New gasahol will separate within 6 months and will draw and accumulate moisture like diesel. Since no default lights are on you could still try autoparts store like Autozone or similar and ask for test but without faults probably a no show. The additives could cause high idle until you are burning 100% gas. Check to see if all vacuum lines are correct after removing air filter.
sounds to me like leaking injectors or fuel pressure regulator. Think about it -- you have puff of smoke (rich condition) and on a cold morning after sitting 8 hours theres no such thing as too much fuel. after sitting 15 minutes the rate of leak down isnt enough to flood it. but in 1-6 hours enough fuel leaks down to the cylinders to flood it (engine still warm enough to not be needing that amount of fuel without stumbling and chocking on it)
It can be a bad distributor or bad distributor cap, the while smoke can be because of no-spark the engine becomes flooded and as the gas burns off the exhaust is rich thus the smoke (maybe a grayish white in color) and the 02 sensors may be turning on the check engine light. When the vehicle is not starting the next time it shuts off check for spark and get back to me. Good Luck
