How to make the hood stay up on a 96 Ford F-150 truck

Does that model Ford truck have hood struts on it (skinny shock absorber looking things)? If so, they're probably shot and need to be replaced. They basically pop off the mounts and can be bought at most auto parts stores. Use a broomstick for the time being if you need to, or you can buy a mechanics hood prop rod from a parts store also.

My hood got stuck and i cant open it how do i open it help

Common problem. Have someone pull the release while you bang on the edge of the front of the hood with the heal of your hand, keep on the edge as you can dent the hood very easy. it will pop open then spray the latch with WD40. Let me know if this works.
