My own addition: Beware moving the engine may loosen the donut where the exhaust pipe/catalytic converter and manifolds Y pipe meet. You will also need wrench extentions and adapters to allow some "bend" in the wrench. Penetrating oil or solvent is recommended to ensure an easy removal of the plugs. Access is still tight and you may have to feel your way.

One reason a 1993 Chevy Lumina may turn over but not start could be the battery. It may also be the spark plugs.

060 is the gap
you have to take the motor brackets that hook the motor to the front of the car and then roll the engine forward carefully to get to the back three plugs.
Front plugs are easy, but the rear plugs are very difficult to get at. The engine can be tilted forward to make access easier.
