SOURCE: hood latch won't release

This has happened to me several times, this will take two people, but all you need to do is have one person pull the hood release, while person number 2 pushes down on the hood, and then pulls up...that ought to do the trick

SOURCE: How do you install adjustable lowering coilover

NOT NECESSARILY IN ORDER: Remove the 2 nuts from the top of your shock tower under the hood - remove the pivot bolt at the bottom of your shock fork - remove the upper control arm ball joint nut - remove the lower control arm ball joint nut - bang on the thick metal near the ball joints with a hammer (not hitting the rubber or the ball joint's bolts - remove the tie rod ball joint nut and do the same with the hammer - pull the shock and spring assembly out - You might need a spring compressor to take out the stock spring safely - remove the nut on top of the shock - It's recommended that you replace your shocks now - install the new springs according to the directions with the package - get a camber correction kit for your car - put it back together and immediately go pay for an alignment. Good luck.

Hood release is broke on both ends, how do I get my hood opened on a 91 honda crx?

Another older post and I hope you've gotten your hood open by now for maintenance. But you should be able to jack the car up and remove an access panel or two and look up and see the hood latch mechanism. You should be able to grab onto the mechanism with a coat hanger or something open.

Would a 1984-1987 Honda Civic sedan/CRX hood release cable work as a replacement for the 1984 Honda Civic wagovan hood release cable?

The dimensions of those cars are nearly identical, so I would be highly surprised if it didn't fit. If it is only a cable you should be just fine. Those things have a high level of interchangeability.

Wont rev over 3000 rpms in any gear

Try disconect the battery from the car. Wait a minute and reconnect. This should reset the computer. This happened
to my moms Honda FR-V. The mechanic had seen it before.
Its worth a try.

Can't get hood open

Try this:
Get behind the hood release lever and grab the wire with a pair of vice grips then pull. After you get it open adjust the wire so this won't happen again.
Good Luck!

Cant open ford Taurus hood 2003 pull cord doesn't work.

Sometimes it appears nothing happens but after pulling the hood get out and try reaching under the hood for the latch. However if nothing at all happened you need someone to press down lightly on the hood as you pull the cord.
