Just ahead of the passenger rear tire.

Factory states these are "lifetime" filters. If the lifetime of a car/truck is only 6 years and/or 60,000 miles? Then sure.

Basically opinions vary. But I'd go for every 3 years and/or 30,000 miles. It's cheap insurance.

I doubt the fuel filter or air filter are causing your issues, but they are cheap to try and replacing them is a good thing. Plugs aren't too expensive either and are part of "regular maintenance" also.

If none of that helps, I'd have the car scanned for codes. Many auto parts stores will scan the standard OBD-II codes for free. If there is a code there, it should point you in the right direction. With modern car electronics, throwing parts at a problem (especially increasingly expensive ones) is not the best way to go.
