SOURCE: inside latch broke off 2002 dodge ram 2500 to open hood?

im taking a guess that the inside latch your refering to is the latch inside the cab of the truck, if so inspect the cable, can you see the metal cable inside the black housing, if you do take a vice grips and grab onto tightly and pull, this should release the mechinism same as if you pulled the latch, otherwise if you can see the cable within, crawl under the front of the truck, between the radiator and grill, reach up to the latch and disconect the cable that comes from the cab, it will be the only cable coming to the latch assembly, as you remove it, it kind of just clips in place, you will see what it pulls to release the latch, grab a screw drived and lightly force the piece over to pop the hood, i know it can be frustrating from experience, took me a while the first time, and they sure dont give you much room to work with, but a little patience will pay off with this , wish you the best of luck!

If the Cable its self has Snapped then You will have to go at it from Under the Front Bumper, Cut the Cable sheath, & Grab the cable with a Small Visegrip. Then get a replacement hood release assembly...----------
Use a large flat bladed screwdriver and wedge it behind the black cone (which isjust behind the secondary latch) on the left side and push it left to right. The hood latch will spring open. --------- Usually you can reach the cable end of the latch ,under the hood's bottom side,at the center.Use a length of heavy coathanger wire about a foot long and form a hook on one end and a hand hold on the other Now if you can hook into the lever and pull it in the direction that the cable does,you may open the latch.This is if you see well enough and can get to the latch or the wire hooked into the end of the latch.You may have to experiment a bit with the hooks size to use it effectively.Have a friend hold down on the hood, to help the latch move easier.Tell him when to let the hood up once you move the latch.-------- this will help.thanks.Helpmech.

SOURCE: 2002 chevy 3500 duramax 6.6 ran hot now cranks but won't start

Check spark plugs, leads, distributor cap & rotor arm, fuel pump, fuel filter, coil pack(s), relays, replace any items that are suspect IE Fuel filter which has probably not been changed since new even though they should be changed on all vehicles every 18 months, all of this can be done at home & will save you a lot of bucks in mechanic/garage fees,

you can either go from under front of vehicle, and use a few extentions to take hood latch off to open hood. or take grill off if possible to get hood open. from the inside of vehicle, if there is cable you can grab onto. just take a pair of vise grips and pull on cable. have a good day !!
