I am new to repairing vehicles, but doing good so far. I wanted to know what exactly I would need to get to replace tie rods for my van? Keep getting told different things just wanted an exact answer. Also, replacing a leaking fuel filler neck? The parts are discontinued any ideas?

As far as the filler neck, you may have to go to an auto parts recycler (junkyard) for the parts.
You will need to buy as many tie-rod end parts as necessary to replace tha worn ones. You'll want to measure the overall length of the tie rod before you disasssemble it or count threads on the parts so you are putting things back in the same approximate adjustment position as when you took them apart. You'll need a toe-in adjustment at an alignment shop at the very least. Make sure you don't leave anything loose - typical beginner's mistake on tie-rod end jobs. You may need a puller type tool to get the tapered pins separated.
