My rear lift gate doesn't open automatically anymore. It stops about 1/3 of the way up and closes again. When I open it manually I have to hold it open or it will fall down. What's the fix for this.

Do you

Check the struts for visible sign of leakage. If none are visibly leaking, either/or may be bad. You would have to remove each and manually compress. The weak one is the bad one. Or you could always replace both.
