Q: Having trouble removing the spark plugs since they are in so deep. Any hints? on 1994 Mercury Cougar

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I'm using extensions and have done hundreds on tune ups, but these dang plugs never seem to loosen to be removed.
The plug holes are so deep so you only see the tip of the plugs by leaning very far over the engine. It's my daughters car a 1994 Mercury Cougar V8.
Thanks.

Spray some PB buster or some other penetrating oil into the holes and let it sit overnight. Should be easier the next day.
