2000 Chevrolet Blazer The hood release cable broke right where the cable goes into the lever. The little piece at the end of the cable is still in the lever. I tried to pull on the cable using a pliers to open the hood but it won't budge. The cable needs to be replaced but without the hood open, I can't get at it. I also tried to "trip" the latch on the hood itself, but I think the cable lock has to be released first in order to try to disengage the latch?


Grab the cable stub with a pair of vise grips, have someone bounce the front of the hood while pulling...most times that will free a balky latch. Then you can change the cable. ... 2000 Chevrolet Blazer

I cannot get the hood on my '98 Dodge Dakota to close securely. I believe that the hood release cable is working fine, as I was able to open the hood. I have sprayed the latch with WD-40. It initially seemed like it was not moving freely, but I can still not get it to close all the way. What can I do short of taking it apart? Is it possible that I will need to replace the latch? If so where would I get those parts.


Have someone hold in on the release lever while you try and shut the hood. Sometimes the cable can get a little stretched and not want to go back into position. If that doesn't work, see if you can manually close the latch with a screwdriver. See ... 1998 Dodge Dakota

I have a very bad squeak when I turn my steering wheel in either direction and when it goes over bumps. Is it possible to grease chassis parts? I also read where sqeaks could be caused by the hood latch needing to be greased. How could the hood hinges cause squeaks when I turn the steering wheel?

Hood latch i need to know what the part is called that latches the hood. my hood has the hook, but i don't have the bottom part that it connects itself to. i also need to know if the piece is going to need to be welded or is it screwed in somehow, and where it is located on my vehicle. to the frame? right now, my hood is being held down by a tow strap that is fished through the hook of the hood and tied around my bumper. i'm afraid if i don't get the piece to latch it into, my hood will fly

My 2003 Ford Windstar starts jerking (missing) around 35-45 MPH or on a hill. It goes away for the most part if I give more gas or let off. My mechanic has already done a full tune-up, replaced plugs, wires, fuel filter and ignition coil pack. He's thinking transmission. Any other ideas (cheaper ones)?

Bought a 1992 acura vigor and found horn fuse missing. when I replaced the fuse alarm goes off and constantly sounds. how do I stop it? I've read that there's a relay somewhere under the hood


Horn relay located on the right side kick panel,you will see a row of relays,if horn relay is okay, more likely your horn control pad has a short inside causing horn button contacts to stick causing horn to keep blowing. ... 1992 Acura Vigor

The straps which allow me to unlock latch to fold down the rear seats are missing. (I had the car detailed some time ago; seems they were not re-installed.) Is there any other way to get the rear seats to fold down? What part(s) do I need to replace and re-attach the straps? Thanks you.

99 jeep grand cherokee 4.7 v8 oil pressure drops from 40 at idle to 0 when given rpms. Will come right back to 40 when you let idle again. I have removed pan and checked screen. It was clean. Original sending unit was leaking so I replaced. Still thew same. I hooked up aftermarket gauge and pressure never goes below 40 no matter what. Hook back up sender and it acts up again. Don't think 2 senders would be bad. Could it be oil in plug in missing up current?


From what you just said, it sounds like the problem may be the dash gauge itself. I have only seen one oil pump act like that (mine) .... in that case the pump drive gear was turning on the shaft and slowing down as rpm increased but that is so rare ... Jeep Grand Cherokee

Pulling the hood latch handle does not release the hood on a 98 Volvo v70, it is not out of adjustment because the cable broke from the latch and pulling the cable itself with vice grips does nothing, there is no movement of the cable at all.

My 2007 Dodge Durango. When I turn on the left blinker, it either goes out or the right blinker will flash instead. The right blinker works most of the time, but goes out before I make my turn.

I explained to theim that I replaced the switch with one from the parts store and the said that it must be replaced with the OEM. The problem now
