Your overheating issue, for that we need to monitor the coolant and oil temps and fan operation to see which is out of specs. It could be as simple as a sticking thermostat for that issue. For the low power and smoke, its most likely one or more injectors that have a weak solenoid that needs heat to be able to pulse the injectors correct. Do you have access to a good diagnostic tool?
You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.
