just bought a new hood strut from rockauto.com its an AC-Delco version. and for some reason the strut one go down. seems like there is too much pressure. it came from the package like this. is there any special trick to fix this?

Have you tried Wheaties--breakfast of champions?

Sounds like a valve is stuck. Call for replacement on strut.

The first few times you try to collapse a gas spring, it's TOUGH. Wheaties. Put on a pair of leather gloves, grab the cylinder, push straight down onto a mat on the garage floor. Repeat. DON'T BEND THE PISTON ROD...
