    Angry This is great...

    On my way home tonight, my car just starts overheating... I keep driving home, and it goes back to normal... Pop the hood to see if anything noticable is goin on, now the hood wont close... I'm sick of driving it anyways, and My cars never seem to last a year anyways... Maybe it is her time go...

    Yah, and time to lose the auto and go to 5-speed too. So many things I hate about my car, my so many that I like. But the major ones are that it is auto, and carbed... Ahhhh, I wish my damn hood would close...

    I nearly crapped myself when I was doing about 90 on the freeway and the light comes on saying my hood is open. I slammed on my brakes so fast, haha. Pulled off the road and reclosed it. I dunno if it was really unlatched or if it was just a false signal, but phew.

    Just don't drive your car till it's fixed

    Hey Ghetto,
    I want to see a pic with that light on.
    I have replaced the latch and I can honestly say I do not have a sensor for it.

    I don't have a hood open light. Never seen one either.
    No projects. Life consumes my time and money.

    ahahaa

    I fell you guys on the hood thing.

    my first trans am a 89 formy, I bought it with out the hood bolted down in the back towards the windshield. well one day after working on her/ w the hood totally removed (had to tune her up) I had her only a week. I go inside for the nightafter putting the hood on to keep the elements out. Next morning on the way to work. (always drive fast.)

    I head down my road (dirt/slow) take a right onto the pavem,ent and take off...i get to about 60 and it shaking violently...I try lets off gas slowly, and even braking a little, but tis to late...


    WHOOOOOOOOOOSH!

    it must of flown 5 stories in the air...I watched in the rear view as it hit behind me about 10 car legths or more back after i stoped, it hit the ground and folded in tow like a taco. good thing there was no one behind me!

    damn.

    SO I get a new GM OEM hood, still in primer grey, numbers writen on it from factory and everything..brand new. two weeks later a friend of mine is fixing an electrical problem for me. i pick up my car alter and head home get to same speed and

    WHOOOOOOOOOOSH! there gos my new hood, up in the air and into the ditch..lucky it was grassy and it wasnt harmed...that day i went and got hood shocks and bolts.

    2 weeks later the bird was tag teamed at a stop light by a drunk driver in a 67 caddy and a f-250....

    totalled...hit so hard it split the rim in two.

    I was wrong. I thought the light was for the hood, but is actually for the headlights. Sorry to claim something, only to be false.

    OFF WITH YOUR HEAD!!!!! lol jp. Now I went to turn the headlights on tonight, and only one went up, after punching the other one a little bit it popped up though, now they stay up. But it hasn't really overheated, and I was driving all night. It went up just a little bit, but it went right back down to normal... Any ideas of what it could be? Thermostat maybe?
