I need to replace the far left one when standing inf ront of the engine ( Cylinder 4) Is it easy? Or hard?

 

I realise this is a little old, however.....

 

Just for reference, all parts on or in a car are taken as viewed from the drivers seat, ie the 4th core plug you mention is on the RHS of the engine

lol, that is exactly why the hand of drive is not mentioned

 

I use a rust remover in one of my machines to just pour and flush to remove the rust, works well and I can just leave it till it's done.

It is the same convention as a ship and an aircraft. Left (port) & right (starboard) are looking towards the front.
