The system is under the gas tank and sometimes it gets damaged from running over a curb or something flying up from underneath. Get under and look for a gas leak. You can also get the error if you leave the gas cap off, don't tighten it all the way, or if it's damaged.

How do I remove the rear washer reservoir on a 2001 Ford Taurus Wagon

it is tucked behind the panels. remove panels slowly and see how they slip or pop off. Once that is off, its 3 bolts IIRC 10mm bolts. Then there is one connector for fluid pump and rubber hose.
Simple to do.

How to replace rear window taurus wagon

I have not done this myself and I don't know if there is a good walk through out there but I have to believe this is pretty straight forward. There should be a concealing cover that can be popped off that should expose what I am guessing to be a torx style nut to it. My only advice is to have a second pair of hands there to hold the glass in place while the hinge is removed.

I need diagram for evap system for 2003 Ford

You DO NOT necessarily need special testing and tools to fix this. Many auto parts stores have scan tools that they'll hook up for free as a diagnostic aide. Your evap system is solely to keep fuel vapors from escaping into the atmosphere when your car is OFF, but you will fail emissions testing with a leak.
