Make sure the bolts are tight in the catch mechanism. Check the adjusters also, there are usually two on top of the metal piece running across the front tieing the front fenders together right at the outer corners to keep the hood adjusted to the same height as the fender panels. they look like a small black plastic knob and you can screw them up or down to help the hood latch catch easier.
