If the hood will not stay open and it uses gas shocks. This means the shocks have gotten too weak to do their job. You will want to replace the hood shocks. Looks like they range from about 30$-100$.
Thank you,

Hi there, i have a mazda 04 MPV and after driving and turning the engine off,taking the key out, my lights will stay on until i open the hood.....any idea what could be wrong. thanks

Many of these vehicles have a timer on the lights that keep them so we can see what we are doing in the dark .for a few minutes .Has nothing to do with the hood just TIME

Trunk pop open when driving

close hood and lift up on hood to see if it stays closed.
if not, check inside car to see if latch(that you pull) is in the correct position. you can tell when hood is closed that there will be some tension on latch.
check under hood, where hood closes on latch of hood, is tight and secure(no loose bolts)
also check cable if broken.
only those things can cause hood to pop open.
if all visual inspections check out and still continues to open while driving then the latch (the mechanism that hold the hood down) is bad. vibrating while driving will cause it to open.

Turned car off...sounded like it's trying to start w/o keys

This is called run on,or dieseling ,there maybe a timing problem,or the vehicle is running to hot,the temperature is to high,it may not be cooling good,check the temp of the engine,if it is too hot,then the cooling fan may not be working,or thermostat maybe staying closed.If the vehicles throttle is staying open to much,this could be the problem also.

With the hood open have someone push the switch manually as if the hood is closed and see if the light goes out. If it does the switch is out of adjustment. Readjust the switch and you will be done. If it stays on when doing this you have to check the wiring for a pinched wire.

The hood warning light stays on at all times and when I lock the car the alarm goes off 5 secinds later..what do I do to fix this..?

Try disconnecting the hood sensor. Now I can't remember if the sensor goes open when you open the hood or if it goes closed. Try by disconnecting it and see if the hood light goes out if not then jump the wires. The hood sensor is just a small pin under the hood. Looks like a door jam switch

Help! i had a hood scoop installed on my hood and i HATE IT! what is the best way to fix the drill holes..thanks

The best way to fix the hole is to weld them closed, and then do the body and paint work.
Since it is over the engine, there is a lot of heat. If you just use body filler, it would pop out in a fairly short period of time.
The same thing could happen fron opening and closing the hood.

The other options are, replace the hood with a new or used one.
Or find a different hood scoop that would hide the marks from the one you have on there.
