Well, it doesn't have a distributor so no cap, rotor or wires. It has COP's. Coil on plug. Each plug has it's own coil on it.
I highly recommend using either Motorcraft or Autolite double platinum plugs. All others do not seem to run well in these engines.
Replace the plugs, air filter, PCV valve and clean the MAF. This should get you going in the right direction.

Check out the FAQ threads in the 97-03 forum for some good tips on changing the plugs in a Triton engine.

LxMan1 Said it all pretty much. I would just add in also replacing the fuel filter and make sure the tires are inflated properly. In addition, at regular intervals having the coolant flushed and the transmisson serviced is good practice for long life and prevenitive maintainance.
