Car smokes but it has power

It sounds like the engine is running "rich". This means that the air-fuel mixture if off, and there is too-little air getting to the engine for the amount of fuel. Try replacing the air filter.

If your engine has a carburetor, the problem might be the choke or the mixture screws. Unless you are familiar with you carburetor and the settings for your engine take your car to a mechanic and have it set properly.

If your vehicle if fuel-injected, take it to a parts store that will run the engine diagnostic check. If the the engine, the diagnostics will reveal the problem.

What digit in the serial number determines the engine in a 2004 VW Jetta Wagon TDI?

I don't think there's a particular digit for the engine code. If you call a dealer parts department though, they should be able to decode it for you.

I recently bought it - with 'check engine' light on. It shortly after developed intermittent starting problem: the engine starts beautifully and runs for exactly 3 seconds... and shuts down. A few seconds...

Check engine light WILL reveal all - any good parts store can do an OBII scan for you and most like Autozone,Advance, etc... will do it free. Who knows how long previous owner drove w/light on - and a general rule of thumb - "longer the light is on, the bigger the problem gets".
