Question about 1989 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer
Im taking a chance at answering this question . Because if you don't work on cars or other things like that you likely won't understand what im about to tell you . There is a problem with the luberation at the hood latch and likely you can't get that open at the moumant . This is basicly a disign problem . You have the release inside the vehicle that you pull on to open the hood there is a cable attached to it . The cable runs to the hood release mechinsam and it tends to streach if the release mechinsam is not moveing freely .The way to open the hood at this point is to take a pair of vice grips and clamp them on the cable from the inside of the vehicle to the cable on the release cable be carful not to damage the cable but it has to be tight enough to pull the cable and at the same time have some one else push down on the hood over the latch mechinsam and the hood should pop so you can open it . THEN lubercate the latch with white lithium greese this will help in a big way but you may have to shorten the cable travel because the cable is streched and is now to long . You can do this by useing cable tys on the jacket of the the cable at the hood latch between the cable and the jacket to take up the space from the streach of the cable. S o all you need to do is stand the jacket of the cable off from the hood latch mechinsam to jacket didn't streach the cable did and free up the striker on the hood latch its sticking and caused this whole problem

A hood release cable is around $20 new. Install is not to hard at all. Just feed the wire cable from under the hood through the firewall. You will be able to do this at home for the cost of the new cable. And you won't have to jimmy pry the hood open sometime.
