According to the sevice manual, "Release the hood from below, using a suitable rod, by pressing on the hood release tab at the right side of the lock assembly." I went out and looked at my truck and that is as clear as mud. You are going to have to do it from under the rad support.Get a piece of long steel rod, or a long cheap screwdriver and bend it close to a right angle. Work it up through the hole where the secondary catch is and aim the bent piece to the driver's side. Puu the rod back toward the firewall to keep it in contact with the latch as you slide it across. The tab you have to hit is about 6' from where you are going to start and it will have to move almost an inch to release. The secondary latch has a shield to stop you from doing this at the hood, unless you have a really long piece of small steel rod and could put it in from the fender area.You'll have to put a bend in it as well but not as much.Hope this helps.

SOURCE: inside hood latch broke, so
I would assume that the plastic handle broke from the cable? If so, try grabbing on the end of the cable with a pair of locking pliers. Latch onto the cable and hold the casing, then pull really hard. It should pop the hood. After you get the hood open, replace that cable, or if possible, leave the vice grips on it until you can get it to a shop to get it replaced.

Spray lubricant on it, there is a product sold at auto stores which is white lithium grease I believe, that will help loosen it and prevent it from getting stuck as often

SOURCE: hood latch
Try spraying the latch mechanism with WD-40 or similar light oil and operating the release cable a number of times. Check the condition of the release cable if nothing happens. The latch itself may have a broken spring due to the low temps.

NOW. These cars are notorious for timing belts snapping and GM has advised to replace at 60K. I have this car and it has an interference engine, meaning that if the belt snaps there is a good chance the engine's pistons will bend the intake/exhaust valves, meaning you would have to have the engine rebuilt if this happens.
I am about to have mine changed, along with the water pump and tensioner since the water pump should be replaced before 100,000 and involves the same labor. I've found that at a Chevy dealership the whole package ranges from $500-$800 depending on who you call.
