Hood release pull has no tension

This took about 15 minutes to fix, and I didn't need to remove the wheel. Didn't zip tie the plastic case yet, but will when I can find one, so that the fix is more permanent.

Agree JimBob... rod bearings are on the list for this spring! May DIY it, but since my only lift is a quickjack, I'm not 100% yet. Think I would have enough room to drop the pan??

I have no idea. I had my buddies shop GT PEACE Automotive in Chantilly, VA do the work. Be sure to change the motor mounts, mount arm bolts and do the VAC upgraded oil pump sprocket gear while your in there.
