Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 81000 miles
I have a 2000 Ford Taurus that I really haven't had that much of a problem with. One day I went to open the hood and it did not pop. Luckily I was able to pull the hood up to where I could unhook it with the lever. I took the latch apart and found out that I had a broken spring. I went to Advanced Auto Parts and the guy said to try lowes and test some assorted springs. I did that and found a spring that fit. I put everything back together and dropped the hood only to find that I assembled it wrong. The cable that ran into the car was not put in the correct spot. I didn't fix it right away because it is too cold and was able to keep my hood down. I tried to fix it on a warm day, but now i'm not able to open the hood at all. I can't even get it up to lever latch. How much is it going to cost me to take this to a shop and get the latch fixed? Is there any way I can get it open myself?
have the same problem?
