There is an o-ring where the injector connects to the fuel rail. Sounds like that is where your problem is, that or the bottom seal.

no ! Spark plugs are on the side of motor by exhaust manifolds tucked in to the cylinder heads. nothing is needed to be done on top of motor. on the coils follow plug wires down to the plugs and there they are. Are you sure you are not talking about the fuel injectors ? Yes there is rubber o rings on the injectors and you will have to remove fuel rails

If you do not see a distributor or spark plug wires, then you have a coil over plug system. Changing the coil pack is as easy as removing the hold down bolt and lifting the coil pack off the spark plug. Other things should be checked like signal to the coil, the fuel injector signal and the spark plug

Do you have spark at the number four cylinder? Check that if spark is present , then you should swap the injector from four to five and see if the miss goes with the injector. If not then you will need to test the engine compression .

Can bad fuel injector damage spark plugs on a 2005 Ford Expedition? and if fuel injectors being replaced should less labor be needed for spark plug replacement?

A bad fuel injector can cause spark plug issues. If the injector does not supply enough fuel, the cylinder(s) without enough fuel will run hot, often damaging the spark plugs.

But your mechanic needs to make sure that the injector is the issue and not a fuel pressure issue from regulator, filter, or pump. Hopefully he/she has already done those checks.

As far as the labor cost being less the spark plugs wouldn't be removed during the fuel injector replacement. Even if they did, most mechanics won't cut the price. But if you are a regular customer it can't hurt to ask.
