SOURCE: hood release cable is broken

Is there any part of the cable inside the cabin that you can pull with a pair of pliers? I suggest that you try that. You may need to disassemble it from the pull handle to make that work.

SOURCE: 99 gmc suburban driver side door will not open from inside

My son and I both have 99 suburbans. We both had exactly the same issue. We found the the latch or handle inside the cab on the drivers side had broken off inside the door. Not a big deal. Go to a site called " Parts Train". You can buy virtually any part for your truck there. Get a new inside door handle, pull the panel and replace it. Not an easy job to getting door panel off or back on, but I guarantee this is the problem. You won't have a problem with the passenger side because it is used less. At Parts Train make sure you order the same color as your old one. Take your time and do a good job and you will have your fix.

SOURCE: The heater still won't work after I changed the thermostat on my

Get a female garden hose adapter from the local hardware store. Disconnect the heater hose from behind the fan pulley and attach the hose connection. Disconnect the other heater hose behind the alternator, aim it towards the ground and flush water through the heater core. This worked on my truck.

SOURCE: F150 third door top lock won't release

there's a cable that runs from the door mech up to the top latch, need to pull down on this cable to release the top latch. Only way I could pull down enough to release was through the hole just left of the opening for the mech...cable is attached to the door frame with plastic tie wrap...pop this out so the cable is free in there and then just pry down with a screwdriver...make sure your pulling the handle at the same time. Once the door is open, it's easy to see what happening, most likely the cable is stretched out too much. I just ordered the part from Ford, the cable and top latch come as one part...about $60.

The gas tank release will not work


The first thing to do is spray penetrating oil on the hinges and behind the fuel door. Then, check the cable connection at the release handle. Ifc it has become disconnected, reconnect. The handle may be damaged and may have to be replaced. Also, you may be able to open the fuel door by pulling the cable using a pair of pliers, or by slipping a thin blade of some kind behind it to push the release latch in. If you can get the door open, put as much oil as possible on the release mechanism plunger, and then work it into the mechanism by depressing the plunger repeatedly. If you are able to get the door open, the connection at the release handle is good, and the plunger seems to move freely, the release cable may have stretched, seized or broken, and may need to be replaced.
