The hood on my truck is stuck and I cannot get it open.
The first thing I would try is to have someone pull on the hood release while you pull up on the hood. If that doesn’t work sometimes a firm bump on the hood while the release is being pulled will jar the hood latch and let the hood open. If you are able to get the hood open I would lubricate the hood latch so this problem does not happen again. If neither of those methods successfully open your hood your hood release cable is probably broken. For this repair I would ask for the help of a mechanic to get your hood working again.
