Question about Oldsmobile Toronado
I have a 1966 Olds Toronado and cannot open the hood using the latch and cable.
SOURCE: hood release cable is broken
Is there any part of the cable inside the cabin that you can pull with a pair of pliers? I suggest that you try that. You may need to disassemble it from the pull handle to make that work.

the hood latch is stuck.U can try tapping on the hood by the latch while slowly pulling up on the hood.Or u can climb under the car and push the lock lever back and that will pop the hood

you can open it with a long thin screwdriver. Look thru the center top of the grill. You should be able to see the cable running to the latch. Follow the cable to the end and you should be able to get in there with the screw driver and fish around to get it to unlatch. After you get it open you can tie a piece of wire to the latch sticking out of the grill to pull on and release it till you can get it repaired. Most likely the cable or pull handle is broken

Try smacking down on the hood with a open hand.You may want to have someone inside to pull the lever while you hit on the hood.If you do get it open spray everthing down with a good lubicant.Well good luck and hope this helped.
