There is a lever on the driver side just under the dash near the door and there is a safety latch under the hood once you pull the lever inside first

Mercury sable 1996 changed fuel filter had brown gas in it did this ruin fuel pump. Can hear pump when trying to start car

Most likely the fuel pump is ok, but there is likely air in the fuel line that you need to bleed off under the hood.

It is possible that the fuel pump went bad, and the way to know is to check the fuel pressure (same place you bleed it under the hood). The fuel pump is in the tank, so it's a real pain to change.

Mercury Sable Problems

while pulling release handle punch the hood near wiper side with bottom of your fist or have someone else do it if you can't reach it while pulling out handle,if you see front of hood lift in any way you should be able to open it then,but before closing it again you should spray the hood latch with a good amount of wd40,that usually get hood working normal again.

Relase lock on hood 2003 sable

Happens all the time. The easiest way is to have someone pry it up for you while you pull the handle. Be gentle don't scratch the paint. Flat head screwdriver wrapped in a rag works best.

How can I open the hood of my 1998 mercury sable. It has an electric release and has a dead battery, I see no manual release.

If you can access the cabin plug a lead into the cigerette lighter socket and apply 12v, this will back feed the system enough the open the hood. you may need ignition on to do this.
