SOURCE: Was on freeway and lost power. trouble restarting

If you have a lot of black smoke then its over fueling getting to much diesel to the cylinder's. Sounds like an injector problem with the slight knocking noise. Che ck the return pipes are not blocked. If the smoke is dark brown then this is a problem with the valves on the intake manifold which control's the intake of exhaust emmisions.

SOURCE: Piece of plastic is hanging down under front end

It is most likely the front lower valance.It may stay in place or it may fall off depending on how many fasteners are still in place to hold it in position.
