Question about 1998 Ford Explorer
The lever for the release cable is probably rusted up. If you look down into the latch you should see the cable attached to a lever. It may help to have somebody pull the hood release to help you find it. Spray the hood latch with some penetrating lube and push the lever back with a small long screwdriver. Be careful not to dislodge the cable from the lever. Pull on the hood release and if necessary push on the lever with the screwdriver. Continue lubing, pulling and pushing until everything works on its own.

if you can see where the cable is broken... cut some of the insulation away from the cable, use 2 pairs of pliers... 1 pair on the insulated part of the cable and 1 pair on the cable itself- pull opposite ways and u should have it. hope this helps and good luck
