Question about Toyota Cars & Trucks
The mechanism will move down but springs back up, it will not lock in place

SOURCE: hood latch won't release
This has happened to me several times, this will take two people, but all you need to do is have one person pull the hood release, while person number 2 pushes down on the hood, and then pulls up...that ought to do the trick

Try Super Heavy Duty Lock Tight and attach it to the fuel door. Make small hole to feed the end of spring into then glue it down tight.
