The green (or green with yellow strips) is for Earth. This is the D shaped socket in a US outlet. The Black (US) or Brown (UK) is for Live. This is the narrow rectangular socket on a US outlet. The White (US) or Blue (UK) is for Neutral. This is the wide rectangular outlet on a US socket. The color code may vary for other countries, so be sure to check.

What order do you put new spark plug leads back in?

There is no specific order that you have to follow to replace the spark plug wires. My advice is to replace each wire one at a time in order to not get confused which is easy to do. Just remove one wire, get a new wire the same length and replace that wire. Then move to the next wire.

No there is not a single spark plug coil wire like on the earlier vehicles. Instead, if you have the 5.4L you will find eight coil packs one on each spark plug. In addition, if you have the 4.6L you will find two coil pack blocks.
