2003 Escape XLT error codes

I have a 2003 Escape XLT with a V6, 164,000 miles. I am getting error codes P0302 and P0316. I have read the forum and searched Google, and it appears and the most likely cause is the coil on the #2 cyclinder. Is that a good assumption? Assuming it is, I guess you have to take off the intake manifold to get to that coil/plug. I have a few questions and would really appreciate some advice.
<O</O
- Is that a job I can take on myself or are there some tricks to getting the manifold back on correctly.
- Also would you agree that I should go ahead and replace all three coils under the intake manifold since I have to take it off anyway, or would you just replace the #2?
- Lastly, I have found some coils for $45-50 online and they are about $70-80 at the local parts stores. Is one brand better than the other or should I buy the lower priced coils?
I really appreciate any advice you guys can provide. I am mechanically inclined and have did a lot of work on cars in the past, but have never pulled a manifold.

Thanks! Dan

I had 2 coil packs go within 2 months of each other. At about 115,0000. They go without warning. You know they are gone when it rains. They can go at anytime, but they also can last the lifetime of the vehicle. Best to replace the coils as they go bad.

Mechanic charged me $200 to replace each one. Not sure if they were in front or the manifold had to come off.

If you can do this yourself, you will save a bit of cash.
