First off, sorry about originally posting in the wrong forum. I didn't even think about looking under Ford.
As for the smoke upon startup, it's white, like normal. The plugs, I didn't notice anything odd about them. Granted, I should check them again. I checked them when it first started doing this (roughly a month ago, but I haven't run it more than three times since).
I'll look into the spark plug wires. I never noticed anything odd about them either, but I never inspected them closely. The distributer cap, I was told, was replaced when I bought it (last June, have put 12k miles on it since). How could I tell if it is going bad? As far as the air intake, yes, it has a crack in it. It's been wrapped with electrical tape since I bought it. Never thought much of it. Also, the engine light has not come on during any of this.
