You need more tools.
Different plug sockets,extensions,etc.
On a rare occasion, you can get them from below,if the vehicle was raised up.
I think you just haven't done a lot of transverse engines
I spend $500 a year on tools ,just to keep up.
Over my life time I,am up to about $40,000, and I only spent a few years in auto field professionally

I have a 1998 ford taurus the check engine light blinks and it doesnt want to pull up the hill.

When the CEL flashes you can damage the catalytic converters. Usually their are multiple misfires. The most likely cause is ignition, spark plugs, spark plug wires, ignition coils etc.

Replacing rear speakers on 1998 ford taurus

i had a 93 tarus for awhile and i dropped some pioneers in it. it was easy because the speakers actually sat on top of the paneling but on a 98 they are under it. the easiest way to go about changing them is to remove them from the top of the trunk. the fabric unclips from the top and a few screws hold the speakers in place.

98 ford taurus 3.0vulkin

If you're talking about the spark plugs, it's pretty easy. Follow the spark plug wires back to the cylinder heads. This will have a rubber cap on it, pull that off and you'll see a little metal stem. Use a 5/8" Sparkplug socket (deep well with a little rubber insert to protect the plug) and unthread it. After this, coat it with some spark plug thread sealer (it's in a little pack sold at the front counter of an auto parts store like Autozone). Put your new plugs in and tighten them down. Don't tighten too much, you just want them to be snug. Hope this helps.
