Toyota Hiace 1993 diesel cap not closing/releasing by pull cable

My 1993 Toyota Hiace diesel cap release lever has suddenly stopped working. I guess the cable has snapped or become disengaged at one end or tother. How do I access the cable at the drivers end or the tank end which is at the back.
Hope someone out in virtual land can help.

Fuel release lever will not release fuel cap


Soak it a bit with WD40, try spray inside the cable cover if possible. Let sit overnight. Then have someone push in and out on the door lightly wile you pull on the lever. Check to make sure the lever is actually pulling the cable, it may have snapped of come out of the handle. If snapped try grabbing it with vice grips and pull it that way.

Trunk will not close


check that latch is releasing when using remote. remote uses a cable to pull latch and cable may need to be lubed causing the latch to stick open. Let me guess if you slam a couple times it will latch, lube the actuator cable and latch well. hope this helps

2008 Toyota Camry gas-cap door release is stuck; how do you release it?


Hi fellow,
Your problem has two options ;first, you have to inspect the interior wire that pulls the lock of the gas cap.If found cut you should replace it at the mechanic's. Secondly, once the wire remains uncut or undamaged by any reason, the lock itself might be jammed due to the rust or misuse. Therefore, you are advised to use some anti rust liquid it wil work. Good Luck.

1997 toyota rav 4 hood release dose not work


It may be that the hood release cable has streched so there is no tension when pulling the leaver. Try to reach reach above the lever and pull the cable making it less slack and then pull the lever all the way up with your other hand and hopefully this will open it, if this works i suggest replacing it before it stretches even more or snaps and you wont get it open..

Hood will not open due to the release lever on the inside on a 1993 dodge caravan tried pulling the cable but it still will not release the hood


Problem could be the other end of cable came loose from hood release latch under hood. You need to look through the grill closely and see if it did. I have had a few dodge caravans that this has happend to.

Ford escort 1989 increases its speed without stepping on the gas


First guess is that a motor mount is broken and lifts one side of the motor just enough to pull on the throttle cable.
Second guess is that the cable return spring is broken or missing. It pulls the injector throttle body lever closed when the gas peddle is released.

Hoodlatch is doesn't stay shut for Toyota Corolla 1993


Before you replace it, are you sure that it is broken? Most of the time, the release mechanism rusts, and sticks in the "open Position". Spray it down with WD-40, and look at the latch closely. Look at the driver side, and see if the release cable is retracted. Using a long screwdriver, pry the release cable back out. It just may be seized up.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for advice.

My 1993 toyota pickup's hood release wont open the hood. The cable still has tension on it but the inside release is loose & flops up & down.Any suggestions.Thank you!


Stretched or frayed cable, or possible mechanism seized or broken. Try looking up under hood in latch area, as someone pulls cable lever inside, & watch what happens. You may see a piece getting pulled , and be able to get to it with a screwdriver to assist it in going further to open the latch. Then inspect cable close for conditions I mentioned above. You may be able to tighten up the slack (adjust) once the hood is up, otherwise a new cable may be necessary. If worse comes to worse, you may have to grab that slack in the cable with a pair of vise grips & give a little more pull to get it unlatched. Make sure you lube the mechanism under hood too.

Trunk Problem


Has the key been giving you trouble opening the trunk before, or was this something that suddenly stopped working? Same question concerning the trunk release. If this has been going on for a while (getting worse gradually), try spraying something like wd-40 in the lock, then try the key. The trunk release cable stretches out w/ age and will stop working. If you can get vice grips to grab firmly on the cable, not the release knob, you can pull it out farther than just pulling the knob/lever, it should open. If this doesn't work you can remove the back seat, look to see if something was closed in the latch (a shirt, coat, etc, that might jam the latch)countrycurt0
