Hood release

(1991 Ford Explorer)
in Asheville, NC on January 01, 2011
The hood of my explorer will not open. The interior pull lever comes out the entire way, and the lever under the hood seems to move the full way to release, but the hood is tightly closed.

push down on the hood then pull the interior pull lever.try pulling up on the hood left side then right side back and forth.that should get the hood open then spray some pb blaster or lithium grease on the latch and cable mechanism to prevent future aggravation.
