The hood release cable came off in my hand. I cant reach the remainder. I tried looking for the emergency release but dont see it. How do I get the hood open? I really need to put some oil in.

1990 Taurus GL V6

Thanks

Wow, didnt think this question would befuddle so many people. I went to the mechanic and he showed me how to reach under the car and pull on the cable. Hope this helps anyone else with a similar problem.

Not befuddled. I think most of us would be able to figure it out without a mechanic's help.

All you have to do is reach up from under the car after properly jacking it up and supporting it, then grab the release lever that is right in the center of the hood behind where the latch is. It's impossible to see, you have to do it by feel. Once you have it a good tug will release the hood. It will have the cable attached to the lever.
