sounds like it if its a 4.6 its got the plastic fantastic intake and you get all kinds of weird cracks with it

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.

i was thinking it is intake because my oil is not milky or anything. thank you
