Remove the plugs on a cold engine only. Squirt some penetrating fluid into the spark plug holes and let it sit for a couple hours before you try and you should be fine. Only replace with double platinum or iridium plugs. 2.3 duratec is a waste spark ignition system and will burn up other plugs very quickly.

The fuel filter is on the drivers side inner frame rail just about under the drivers seat. No tools required to remove. Press down on the "buttons", while pushing in then pull out. Sometimes takes some wiggling but overall very simple. Best to releive the fuel pressure (which is 65 psi on this engine) by running the engine and pulling the fuel pump fuse until the engine dies, or releasing pressure on the Schrader valve on the fuel rail.

Pvc valve is a major choir. I recommend watching some videos before you attempt that job. It requires pulling the drivers side wheel and inner fender.
