What color is the smoke ? is it bluish or is it white ?
The blue colored smoke would smell more like burning oil, which would indicate a broken piston ring, ect. the white smoke if it smells of coolant(anti-freeze) would lean toward a head gasket problem.

What color smoke? White usually water, blue, likely oil. Bad EGR or PCV valves, Blown head gasket, valve guide seals. Need to do a compression test.

check the throttle body, the air has to come in for it to rev that high, if it were the injectors it would be blowing black smoke and choking out the engine

Usually white smoke means there is water getting into the cylinders, indication usually of a head gasket failure. the smell of fuel could be that it is flooding due to compression and vaccum. Check your oil for water and your water for oil. Hope this helps.

recon job poorly done. sounds like a gasket or engine/tranny seal. is there moisture droplets on the oil dipstick? How often do you change the oil? if you change it every 3 thousand miles or 3 months faithfully, and it is not leaking oil (you see no puddles under the car) onto your driveway or street where you park it, and there are no globs of black gunk on the underside of your car anywhere, then someone could have dropped something into the engine compartment somehow, through one of the spark plug holes, when the oil cap was off, etc.

I don't know if it would cause the shaking and vibrations, but for the smoke it could be loose nuts or broken studs on the exhaust manifold -- when engine is cold check each of the nuts (there should be 8) to see if they are loose or missing/broken; you may have to remove a heat-shield in order to gain access

Firing order for a 1996 EF ford falcon


EF & EL are 1,5,3,6,2,4
EF has a coil pack under the inlet manifold the EL has a distributor
EF uses a waste spark system so 2 plugs are fired at the same time eg 1 & 6 - 2 & 5 - 3 & 4
