So I baught a used a used v6 98 back in may of 11, and I now have 147,000 miles on it, I have no idea of its past, and this weekend I plan on replacing the spark plugs, what change can it possibly make ? I really want to do this cause I know it'll do some good but I'm not sure what, I also want to do just so I can gain some knowledge on changing spark plugs, even though I know it'll be easy.

if the plug wires are looking rough (never changed) get a set of OEM ford ones along with the OEM plugs (copper I am sure, and I am not sure on the gap but gap them to stock specs)

install to stock tightness (do NOT over tighten) and use a bit of antiseeze on the threads.

When you install do ONE Plug wire at a time to keep track of what goes where, you may also wish to consider a new coil pack~ if they are cheap

at 147k if the trans fluid has been neglected not sure I would even mess with it (might make matters worse) but if its been kept up then consider changing that, also full engine coolant flush is a good idea.

many run seafoam through the car, seems to clean it out good so you can consider that and finally some good injection cleaner and clean the MAF/IAC with electronic parts cleaner.

Ok cool thanks guys, so that makes my choices for this weekend, I'm sure it'll be easy to do, and I've also heard wd40 is also good for cleaning the engine, I think ill give that a try and clean the outside of my engine. What other little things could I do to my car, cause in the end I want to learn as much as I can.
