Sounds like a cracked distributor cap, however small it is.
Needs to be replaced, obviously.

Yeah, I'm assuming it's coming from cracked, loose, or incorrect model cap

Just curious... what did you have done for 3K? - I presume that didnt include a tune-up.! After a 104k miles, the cap could certainly develope a crack. Its only plastic.
Also..be sure the spark plug wires are fully seated/pushed down into each of their locations and their boots cover the holes.
