SOURCE: my hood latch on 1986 chevy pickup broke at the

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.

SOURCE: hood latch stuck 2000 chevy blazer

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.

SOURCE: ok, i have a 2005 chevy aveo and i ould like to

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.

2005 chevy aveo brake light comes on when i shift... why?


your brake fluid is low. I have a 2005 aveo that i took to dealer under warranty and told them the clutch didn't feel right and the brake light kept coming on. they told me they have not seen either issue i complained about charged me 700 dollars in labor and rental fees and sent me on my way. I then proceeded to take it to the used car dealership i bought it from and they bled the clutch and said they got alot of air out when chevy told me they didnt get any. Anyway about 3 weeks later the light was on steady and the clutch began acting funny again. I bled the clutch myself this time and didnt check the fluid level or i would have caught the next dangerous part. On the 2005 chevy aveo hatch back i have with a 1.6 5 speed shares one reservoir for brake and clutch fluid. I was driving along one day down a 12% grade about 2 mile long stretch and my brakes failed. I filled the brake fluid reservoir at first chance i got considering my arm was sore from operating the hand brake for 6 miles or so. the light went out. It will probably come back on as did mine. the leak in my system was a check valve under the brake master cylinder. be careful until you get to fixing it.

After you have pull the hood latch inside try beating on the front corners of the hood to see if it will pop up enuf jus to get ahold of the latch(under the grill on the drivers side). You can also get to the latch from under the car but make sure you pull the cord inside first
