2010 Chevrolet 2500 Extended Van can't get hood open. Inside latch flips open, but still can't raise hood.


Have someone press down on the hood with their palms while you try and release it, if it does open lube the hood latch with white lithium grease AKA "Lubriplate".

I'm trying to close the hood on my son's 66 mustang. The grille seems to be riding too high as it seems to hit the bottom of the hood when the hood tries to shut. I think I have the right latch.


If all parts are original and there is no front end damage, the grill should not be a problem. The hood striker attached to the hood is normally not adjustable. Is it bent? The latch assembly is the adjustment and can be moved up or down by loosening the bolts that secure it to achieve proper hood closure/alignment

Adjust hood


Loosen the hood latch mounting bolts- you should then be able to move the latch assembly up or down. If you move it down the hood will latch closer to the bumper. Hope this helps

I drive a 1991 Buick Park Avenue and I can't get the hood to open on my car. It overheated yesterday and I need to pop the hood to see the problem, but the hood won't come up. I tried the release lever...


I would have someone hold the hood release latch while bumping the front of the hood to try to bump the hood loose. Once opened, be sure to lubricate the hood latch under the hood and also lubericate the safety latch as well to prevent this in the future. Use white lithium grease to lube all latches. Be sure to work the latch a couple dozen times after lubricating a few times before closing the hood to ensure it is working properly.

Hood release wont latch


replace hood release cable or lubricate the cable to free it up.
In the mean time, push the cable back in and see if that helps.

My hood on my jeep liberty will not complety shut? the only thing holding it down it the saftey latch.


Look at the hood alignment to make sure it's aligned properly and allowing the latch to catch. If the hood is fine you'll need to adjust the latch. Start by lubricating the latch mechanism so that it moves freely. Many times a hood will fail to latch properly because the latch itself isn't moving freely. Next check the area where the hood latches to the body and see if it's coming up short. If so manually adjust the latch until it's in proper position to grab and hold.

your going to have to readjust the bumpers, there has to be tension so the hood pops up, try adjusting the latch to get the hood to close even, try that but put the bumper back or adjust acording to the latch adjustment and sprak latch good with wd40. good luck.

Hood will not open when you pull release handle inside car 2005 buick lacrosse


There might be several problems:

1. Cabling to and from handle and latch is loose or stretched (normal wear) or broken. Replace and/or adjust
2. The latch is dirty or bent/deformed. Clean and lubricate
3. The latch needs adjusting, lubricating. Clean and lubricate
4. Misalignment of hood due to: wear, or slight bump/accident, nudge. Check for alighnment!

Try having someone pull up the hood while you pull the lever. This is a quickie only; then do items mentioned above...
