After you have pull the hood latch inside try beating on the front corners of the hood to see if it will pop up enuf jus to get ahold of the latch(under the grill on the drivers side). You can also get to the latch from under the car but make sure you pull the cord inside first

My hood will not close on a 94 Chevy suburban

I have had a similar problem with a 2000 Jeep Cherokee classic. It turned out that the cable linking the hood latch to the hood release lever froze up and just needed replacement. My hood release lever on the inside of my Jeep felt loose when I tried pulling it. If your hood release lever feels loose it may be a frozen cable. Hope this helps.

Loose hood cord 95' civic, first I had to push the little latch that makes the hood shut completely with a screw driver now it won't even open (the hood) I pulled on the cable with pliers but no...

Just perform some checks please,
  • try to pull the hood release lever with its cable tightly pulled towards you.
  • that may tighten the loose cable so a release can happen
  • then pull out the hood piece hard, so the lock would release.
  • trimming is not a good idea, because it would be hard to set it back into the assembly.
  • try this, good luck. vote it!!

How do i get the hood open on a 1995 chevy caprice 5.7 if the cable is detached from the latch???

Have a helper push down on the hood close to where the latch is. You, under the front bumper, look up at dead center of hood. If you can see and reach the latch where the cable attached, either grab it with pliers and pull latch in same direction as the cable would and tell your helper to stop pushing down and the hood should pop up. A long screwdriver to pry the latch might work if you can't grab it with pliers.

My 1996 chevy caprice cable to the hood snapped and I was using a pliars to pull the cable. Now the cable will not pop the hood. How do I get my hood up?

Boy, that's going to be tough. You might try spraying some WD-40 between the grill and hood, in towards the middle of the hood where the latch is. Have an assistant push down and pull up the hood, while you pull the hood cable. Most likely the latch is sticking, due to dirt and grease build up. You maybe able to get to it from underneath, but not too likely.
