Question about 1988 Ford F 150
Hood release has no tension on it. Hood will not latch. Appears that the cable may be stuck.
The latch is stuck in the open position. I always found white lithium grease worked best on those latches but any good lubricant will work. Try moving the latch manually with a screwdriver. After applying the lubricant move the latch a few times. You should see the tension return to the release, if it doesn't you have a broken release cable.
