Unless you are replacing the struts as a unit; springs and cartridge together, you will need a spring compressor to avoid dying from the coiled spring when released.
If you are starting on DIY repairs, I recommend you invest in a Haynes service manual for your Santa Fe:

My mechanic replaced my front struts with an after market strut without the CAT system wires and plugs and now I get the CAT system failure light.

You need to put resistors in the connectors to the old units to mimic the circuit resistance, I am sorry but don't know what value/ohms they should be. Try joining a Jag owners forum and asking there

How do i replace my spark plug wires in the rear of my 97 chevy lumina? do i have to take the engine mounts off and pull it back?

You have to remove the torque strut, at top and
your front/radiator side and either pry the engine
to the front of car or buy the tool that goes into the
strut mount for that purpose. It draws the engine away
from firewall

First i've got to replace my shocks/struts and are there any special tools that i'll need?Second my car misses and it's from the fifth spark plug ;I've changed the plug already!!Can you help me PLEASE!!!

have you checked the distributer cap and the lead to number 5? as far as your suspension goes it seems just from a quick look at the diagram it looks like you will need a set of coil spring compressors to remove the insert of the front strut but you may be able to buy a complete unit.

I have a 2001 oldsmobile silhouette and I need to change the spark plugs I see the three up front but I am not sure how to get to the three in the back?

You'll have to rotate the engine forward.Remove the air cleaner duct and accelerator cable.Place transmission in neutral(Block rear wheels). Remove the two bolts and detach driver's side torque strut(front engine mounts) .remove one bolt from radiator side of the passenger side torque strut. Use a ratchering strap attach to radiator support and engine lifting eye,rotate engine forward. remove coil pack to ease access to spark plugs. Good luck!!

Hi, first there is either 1 or 2 engine struts attached between the radiator and the engine. disconnect them at the engine and reinsert the bolts into the strut then standing in front of car either push or pull the car by hand to make engine lean towards radiator just enough to catch a tab located on the engine strut mount to hold the engine away from the firewall with plenty of room to access the sparkplugs.

Changing Spark Plugs

There is 6 plugs on your engine. The 3 in the front you should be able to get with a spark plug socket,extension- and rachet. Once you take car of those three you have to rotate the engine forward to reach the rear three. then you have to rotate the engine forward
To rotate the engine forward you have to:

1: block the wheels and place the car in neautral, then disconect the negative battery cable.
2: disconnect the air intake duct.
3: remove the torque strut to engine bracket bolts, and swing the struts aside. place the bolt back inside the passenger side bracket.
4: using a pry bar in the passenger side bracket, rotate the engine forward and secure it in this position, to secure the engine in the forward position it will require connecting a rachet strap to the engine and to the frame or radiator support.
5: reverse the procedure when you have completed the task. put the car back in park and torque the strut to engine bracket bolts to 35ft-lbs

When you have the engine rotated forward it will be much easier to access the rear 3 plugs. to find the plugs once you have the engine rotated all you have to do is follow the plug wires to each of them.
make sure you remove the wires and replace the plugs one at a time so you dont mess up the firing order.
