sounds more like a head gasket to me that has blown, hold your hand over the smoke when you first start the car (so you wont burn yourself) and see if any coolent is leaking,,,

it is a 4.6, 97 crown vic. does have plastic intake. my oil is not milky, so that is why i was thinking intake. thank you.
