“How to Pop Hood of Car”
Most cars these days have a hood release lever located inside the car usually on the left side of the steering wheel. The hood release is usually a large red lever that you pull to open the hood.
If your car doesn’t have an interior hood release lever you’ll need to open the hood from under the front of the car. Look for a small handle near the center of the grille. This is the hood release. Pull on the handle to release the latch and open the hood.
If you can’t find the hood release consult your car’s owner’s manual. It should have instructions on how to open the hood.
Once you’ve located the release lever or handle pull it to pop the hood open. If the hood doesn’t open make sure you’re pulling the lever or handle all the way. If the hood still doesn’t open there may be a secondary release latch that you need to disengage. Again consult your car’s owner’s manual for instructions.
With the hood open you should now be able to see the engine. Be careful not to touch any of the hot engine parts as they can cause serious burns. If you need to service the engine consult a professional mechanic.
