Question about 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera
The plastic lever located inside the car (next to the emergency brake) that pops open the hood has snapped. We've tried using pliers to pull at the cord attached to the lever but there was no luck. I have no clue how to get under this hood! Please help me.
Push down on the hood where the latch is, the design is bad, very. If you push on it a few times that will excersice the bad design, and make the hood easier to open.

Usually you can grab the end of the cable with a good pair of visegrips and get it to release. However, if the lock under the hood is stuck, you may have to pull on cable and have someone push down on the hood to get the latch to unlock.

Locate the interior hood-release lever under the dashboard on the driver's side of the interior of the car.
Lift up and toward you on the hood release lever. The lever is connected to a cable that releases the hood. The hood will pop up about 1/2 inch when you pull the lever.
Move to the front of the car and locate the exterior hood-release lever under the front of the hood. It is located near the middle of the vehicle, just beyond where the front edge of the hood meets the body. Lift up on the inner lever.
Lift up on the edge of the hood while holding the inner lever in place. When the hood is up, find the hood prop and raise it, setting its tip in the hood-prop mount on the hood, to hold the hood up while you work in the engine bay.
