I can't believe the part would be much more than 40-50 bucks from the dealer. Installation may cost you if you have a dealer do it.

If the cable broke at the pull under the dash, and it is still sticking out of the casing, behind the pull, you should be able to grab the end of the cable with a pair of plyers and give it a yank to pull the cable and open the hood. If it broke somewhere between the pull, inside the car, and the latch, under the hood, best bet would be if you can see under the front of the car and reach up, you can release it that way, by pulling on the cable.

Try to find the cable that the hood release would normally pull, you might have to remove some panels. Try pulling that with a vice grips.

If the speedometer doesn't work either, then the cable broke or came loose. Otherwise, the gears in the odometer broke.

use the key...manualy I didnt get a hood key with my 93.(re*&$%) You will have no choice but to go underneath the car and try to reach the latch. Somtimes you can see where the cable attaches. Use a screwdriver,pliers, or whatever to activate the lever. Move the lever in the same direction as the cable would and the hood should release.

i had the same problem. the hood release is controlled by a cable. what i had to do was take off the cover by the driver side seat,grab the cable with a pair of vise gripps and pull the wire in the cable with a pair of pliers. it sounds crude but that's the only way to get the hood up. by the way,i would take it somewhere to get the cable replaced.it's buried!!!!!

AnswerI assume the handle broke off in the car. You will have to by a new cable/handle assembly ($30.00) so I would: Cut the remaining handle and end off the cable housing so you can get at the inner cable core. Then take a vise grip and pull on the inner core to release hood latch. New housing/cable assemblies are available at your Ford dealer. get in your floorboard and dismount your dash piece so you can see up under there... this will help you determine where your hood release cable brokeAnswerMy 97 Ford Taurus hood doesn't pop open on its own - however if you pull the pop hood thing and then take a key or screwdriver and slide it under the hood and push up you can pull it up with your hand. This has scratched my hood up but at least I can get it open.

No, only a 98-02 Camaro hood would fit an 01 Camaro

Probably does not have a speed sensor. It would have a speedometer cable that goes from the back of the speedometer, through the firewall, underneath the car, and into the transmission.

AnswerIf it is just the plastic handle broken, behind that is the cable that opens the hood. Just grab the cable with a pair of pliers and pull. You can probably just replace the inside handle and not have to run a new cable. AnswerI assume the handle broke off in the car.

should be about halfway back on the left side of the tranny unless the tranny is not a cable mount. some of the trannys were electric, but the connection would be in the same place on the tail shaft of the tranny on the driver side.

I would trace cable and use vice grips. Cable is likely dealer only and expensive.IE: Find it and rig it!

release the stifle? Is what it would mean if you broke it up in to Tuku and natia

I would say your throttle cable is snaped by the sounds of it best off 2 just buy a new throttle and cable ....

User Avatar

you may need an engine overhaul, but before i did that i would check the simplest things first, like the throttle cable could just need adjusting.

User Avatar

Dealer said cable is run through a steel tube. They had to cut tube to replace broken cable.

User Avatar

I would say the camaro depending on what year your talking about.

User Avatar

I don't see why not! But why would you want to do that?

User Avatar

To me, I think the Shelby mustang would win over the camaro.Because the Shelby mustang has more horsepower that the camaro

a 84 camaro z28 would have a v8 450 hp engine.
