Question about 2000 Ford Taurus
Have a compression test ( wet and dry tests ) to determine ring condition most likely a broken oil control ring
check the color of the remaining oil as if there is a problem with a badly scored bore form ring failure, the compression fire can be getting to the sump , boiling off the oil and burning the fumes in the sump which is then removed by the PVC system
what ever it is it is a serious engine condition

You are burning oil for sure, if it was a leak you would have a large puddle under the car when it was parked and the underside would be covered in oil all the way to the gas tank. Modern catalytic converters tend to burn off oil so many times you see little smoke

I had the same issues for most of last summer. Finally, I replaced the Plug Wires and the car has been working like a charm since. The other problem I found was that I had the wrong plugs. It seems there are only two types for the Focus, the local parts guys quoted me the incorrect part number and my fuel efficiency went to ****.

From what I understand even a "qualified" Ford mechanic has problems locating this and if you look at a pre-2000 Haynes or Chilton manual it shows it being in a completely different location but to answer your question from what I understand (never changed one myself) it's on the passenger side, under the dash and should be by the radio. Should be held on by one or two screws. Also easy to get to if the radio is removed.
