Spray carb cleaner into the throttle assembly, small quick squirts, while it's running and it will help clean things. Also, take the pcv valve off and shake it. Hear rattling? Still good.

If this does not work, inspect the hood release lever to see if the pivot broken, if so pull directly on the cable with a pair of locking pliers. After you get the hood open make sure to spray the latch with penetrating oil (WD40)
