Hood Latched closed.


You may be able to use a length of stiff wire with a hooked end and work from underneath to seize the latch mechanism and release the hood. I once used this approach with a coat hanger (on a cold winter night) to open the hood of a Honda. It requires lots of patience but it can be done

My car was off for 14 hours; I was standing beside it in the garage and a loud bang sound came from under the hood. I popped the hood and cannot see anything wrong. Am litle afraid to start it!! What


Is your car well protected with antifreeze? If not, maybe a freeze plug came out. Living in Montana, cars stay outside all winter. I always use a 50-50 solution of antifreeze. Never had coolant freeze up.
Before cranking the car, check that your timing belt did not pop. Don't know how it could, sitting there 14 hours, but turn crank slowly by hand, and check that camshaft is also turning.

I can't get hood open to my buick regal gs


WHen I have a car with a hood that won't open, I go thru the grille. Disassemble the grille off the front of the car, and anything else in the way until you can get a hand/screwdriver/pry bar/etc. on the
lock release, and reach up and release it. What happens with hood release mechanisms is that they experience rough use (hood open/close cycles combined with road vibration), and become loose. Once they're loose even a little (even as little as a quarter inch), the hood won't open.

I can't get my hood to open. The internal release works but the latch under the hood won't release. How can I get the hood open


While someone is pulling the thing inside the cars have someone outside the push down in the center front (where the latch is underneath) down. You may have to kind of push and release quickly. If the cable is still attached there it should release.

My 2007 Chevy HHR 2.2L, coolant temp sensor is reading that the coolant temp is 20 degrees warmer than the outside temp after sitting for over 12 hours and the operating temp gets to 214 degrees without...


Sure the engine coolant will be warmer than the outside temperture and if the car has been sitting a long time in cold weather and the outside temperture warms up it could be the other way around. The coolant temperture sensers aren't real accurate as they are a relaitive senser beween hot and cold and the numbers reported don't have to be real just the change from hot to cold and the reching of the coolant to the operating temperture. Noe it the senser doesn't read the opertating temperture coprrectly you'll have all kinds of problems. The therostaste will try to set the temperture of the water to it's set temperture and can open or close completly to get 195 degrees F. Many times if it's too cold then the stat is bad and needs to be replaced This shows up in alot of cars first thing after winter and the first onset of cold weather when the daily tempertures vary the most from day to night.

Where is the latch to open the hood?


Generally, there is a pull handle marked "Hood" on the lower left kick panel by the drivers left calf or foot. You pull that and it should release the hood an inch or two. You then must go outside the car by the front of the hood. There should be a safety catch near the center of the hood that you push to the side, pull up on or push down on to release the safety catch. When you close the hood back, let it drop on its own the last foot or so to make sure that it latches properly. The last thing you want is a hood blowing up into your windshield when you are driving down the highway!

Climate control stopped operating overnight during below freezing


Well last night I went under the hood, opened the fuse panel and removed the "Memory"/Audio fuse, in my car it was yellow and only pulled up, not out, it was a "20". I left it out for a few min, pushed the fuse back in and everything is fine now, just have to reset my clock.

Hope this helps all!
