I recently did a tuneup on my 88 sable, and the back spark plugs were a pain to get to. However, it didn't require any special procedures. You may want to try getting a SMALL ratchet extension to avoid jamming your wrench into the firewall, because without one you won't be able to get far enough into the spark plug seat and a normal sized extension will prevent you from getting in at all. You could also try an appropriately sized deep socket (sorry I can't remember what size the plugs are) and use that instead of a spark plug socket. Just try to use the spark plug socket to put the new ones in, or you may damage the connectors using a normal socket.

CHECK THE PCV VALVE HOSE THAT CONNECTS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE THROTTLE BODY, THESE HOSES ARE KNOWN TO DETERIORATE AND ALLOW UNMETERED AIR TO ENTER THE COMBUSTION CHAMBER, WHEN THIS OCCURS THE OXYGEN SENSOR'S SIGNAL TELL THE PCM TO INCREASE THE PULSE WIDTH OF THE INJECTORS CAUSING THE VEHICLE TO ALMOST STALL.

Listed in the owner's manual and under the hood on a placard. Also the parts store where you buy the plugs can supply this info.

i bet your spark plug wires are bad. Arching is occuring (when the spark doesnt get to the plug) Probably because of old cracked wires
