changing spark plugs on 1993 taurus

help! I recently acquired a 1993 ford taurus with a 3.8L engine..which hadn't been serviced for a while..so I decided to put some new plugs in it..but for the life of me can't figure out how to get at the three plugs in the rear of the engine..can't even see them...someone told me you have to do it by feeling but I can't even get my hand back there to feel them...anyone got any tips on how to make it a little easier!!!..whoever designed this car didn't design it for easy maintenance

Nothing easy about it and there are no tricks that I'm aware of.Good luck.

Just roll up your sleaves, put a piece of cardboard over the top of the engine to lay on, & have at it!! Take the intake tube off first & respect the poor tech that does this every day for minimal $
