2002 subaru forester. will not idle or take fuel properly. have replaced idle air control, coil, timing belt, etc. does not read any codes.

Try unplugging the MAF sensor, the check engine light will come on but the engine should run almost normally. If this is the case replace the MAF sensor. MAF's seldom set fault codes.

What is the easiest way to change spark plugs for a subaru forester 1999

Not really hard at all. Remove air intake on pass. side, twist plug boots to help release, use socket, extension, etc. Use anti-seize on the threads of new plugs and torque to proper specs. DO THIS WITH ENGINE DEAD COLD to prevent damage to threads in head. Other side is even easier. Smear silicone grease on plug wire socket and edges to ease install and removal next time.

Did you replace the plugs with the same plugs (Manufacturer) as the plugs you had in there. Some cars are very picky with plugs. ie: some Japanese cars will only run well with NGK Spark Plugs. Try to use only what Subaru recommends in your engine for the best performance.

2002 subaru forester. Seems to be lacking in power. Gas mileage is at 22 instead of 26-27. Check engine light does not comes on.

If you have not performed a "tune-up" service on your vehicle recently I would strongly recommend replacing your spark plugs, air filter, fuel filter, and an oil and filter change at the minimum. Usually if there is an actual problem with the engine the ECU will pick up on it and turn on the check engine light. That's why I am only recommending the tune up, this is the cheapest way to rule out those issues, and your car will love for it. I hope this info helps...(subytech1)...

My 2003 Subaru Forrester with 89,000 miles was periodically shaking a lot the other day and I opened the hood and there was a spark coming from the coil pack. The repair place said I need a new one...

It's likely the coil. Subaru issued a TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) on this issue. This is not a recall but you may want to show this to your Subaru mechanic or call Subaru after your repair to try to at least defray some or all of the cost for the repair. The link is below:
