Question about 1996 Isuzu Rodeo
Take a phillips head screw driver and take out the two screws holding the lever by the sterring wheel you would noramlly pull to pop the hood open. Pull towards you and the lever should slip out along with the cable attached. Take a pair of vise grips, clamp onto the cable itself and gently pull towards you. It would help if you had someone else trying to open the hood while you do this, but you can just check the hood after you pull the cable. That's how I got mine to open this morning. Now to see if the cable is adjustable and tighten it up so the lever does it's job.

On mine, the very tip of the hood was bent and binding with the fender. I pulled it out a bit with my hand and it works fine.

Mine was wrecked before I bought it. I have my son pull the latch while I pull up on the hood. Only way to get it open without realy fixing it.

Locate the interior hood-release lever under the dashboard on the driver's side of the interior of the car.
Lift up and toward you on the hood release lever. The lever is connected to a cable that releases the hood. The hood will pop up about 1/2 inch when you pull the lever.
Move to the front of the car and locate the exterior hood-release lever under the front of the hood. It is located near the middle of the vehicle, just beyond where the front edge of the hood meets the body. Lift up on the inner lever.
Lift up on the edge of the hood while holding the inner lever in place. When the hood is up, find the hood prop and raise it, setting its tip in the hood-prop mount on the hood, to hold the hood up while you work in the engine bay.
