I have a 2008 Chevy Impala that I’ve owned for going on six months. It’s treated me very well. I’m just now getting ready to give it a nice wash/interior cleaning this evening, but I noticed while cleaning under the hood just now that I cannot get the hood to stay up on it’s own. I’m not sure what the issue is. I keep nudging it gently, but that’s not working. As recently as yesterday I had the hood up when I was checking the oil…it stayed just fine.
Of course, the pre-2014 Impala generation has hoods without the manual supports. So what might the problem be here? I figure this car is a little new to be having a problem like this. Any ideas or suggestions?
