Video Description

This video shows you how to open the hood in your 1998 Pontiac Trans Sport. Popping the hood on your Trans Sport is a two step process, you need to release the hood latch inside your Trans Sport and then you need to release the safety latch under your hood in the front of your Trans Sport. The video above shows you the location of both hood latches. Sometimes, the hood on Pontiacs gets stuck and won't pop up after the interior latch is released. If this occurs on your Trans Sport, simply pull up on the hood and it should pop up for you to release the second latch. Sometimes, especially on older Trans Sports, you may have difficulty getting your hood to latch when you close it. In this case, the interior release lever on your 1998 Pontiac Trans Sport is probably stuck in the "open" position - push the release lever back and forth several times and then try to close your hood.
