Bottom left next to driver's door is the pull handle.
Reach under the hood (you may have to pry a bit to get your fingers in there, particularly if the hydraulic gas lifts are dead so the hood stays down), slightly down and right from center. There's a flat lever you'll push right to release the catch.
Have about a 4' stick handy to prop it up if the lifts are dead, and make sure it's someplace which won't slip, if you do that.
Lube the mechanism with light oil such as 3-in-1 while you're there, and replace the lifts if they won't hold the hood up, not a big deal to do or costly...
Pull the lever! No, I'm JUST KIDDING! I had a Nissan that did the same thing, I had to either jam something into the lever in the up/pulled position or have someone else hold it up while I pulled up on the hood. If I did that, it worked everytime. But if I pulled the lever and then walked to the hood it would NEVER release. My mechanic said something (a clip or something I'm not sure) was broken and it would've cost me about 200 to fix it. So I never fixed it. I just found a block of wood to jam into the space when the lever was pulled and I could open the hood by myself if I were on the road. I hope that helps! Good luck!
you can try an tighten clamp that holds hose onto rad, or if its hose, take it off an go to parts store an get same thing an put on same way took off......chirping could just be belt or pulley, ( cant really say what to do about that)....hood release can get from parts store also, should only be 2 bolts hold it down an you'll see how cable is in there...An yes you can do it, as long as you dont mind getting dirty...
Probably have bad hood struts/shocks that hold it up. These can be obtained at the usual discount parts stores(Kragen,Autozone, Checker,etc) Usually just pop off on one end of a ball mount and unbolt the other after you have propped up hood. These shocks go bad from time or fluid leaks.
under the hood of the car on the passenger side you will see a round motor sticking up.thats the blower motor there should be 3 screws holding it in place and one plug to unplug.you lift the old motor out and put the new one in in its place
