I was thinking of replacing my spark plugs but there is no way I can get to #2 and # 4 cylinders. I am assuming you need to have car on lift?  My next question if I put in new plugs and leave #2 nd #4 with the old plugs would it do any damage until I can bring it to my mechanic to do. The plugs that are in are AC Delco FR5LS.  Should I use a better plug?

Thanks for your help!!!

I have a bent handle flex head ratchet which I used with extensions to get to those plugs. I also had to remove the inner fender and turn the wheel to get to the #2 plug on my 90 L98. Did it with the car on the ground.
