This happened to me on my 92 Caprice. I would pull the hood release and it would not pop up. What I did was to pull the release until I heard the click then pound on the hood right in front an uusually it would pop up at that point. I had it happen for about a year and then I cleaned all the release parts and lubricated them with white lithium grease. I suppose you could have a broken cable but that isn't as common. If it doesn't work opening it, get a friend to hold the release handle inside the car while you pound on it. VBD

First check to see that the hood is shut tight. then operate the hood release then go around to the front of the hood and give the nose of the hood a firm thump down with the side of your fist. Many times this will release the hood latch. Once open, lubricate the latch and stretch the pop up spring out a little with your hand.
