The object in the way is most likely the AIR system Shut of valve. It must be removed in order to remove the coil assembly. There is a tube that connects the valve to the rear exhaust manifold. Removing the two nuts that attach the tube to the exhaust manifold should allow removal of the valve and tube. There is not much room but it can be cone. Some GM designs allow you to rotate the engine forward using special tools - your 2002 Oldsmobile Aurora may be one of them but I ma not sure.
