My 97 Ford Taurus hood doest not pop open on its own however if you pull the pop hood thing and the 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 atleast I can get it open.

Hood release handle is in the glove box. Then proceed as normal at the hood lifting slightly and feeling out the release lever and pull it up.

Answer I 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 broke Answer My 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.
