Default Hood release leaver

Trying again. Have no idea how messed up first and second try except for pushing to many keys. Original try shows date 10/31/2018 at 04:04 PM instead of date 02/27/2019. Who knows.

Under dash hood release leaver does not return to full shut position.

When I pull the hood release leaver (under dash) to release or unlock the hood, it unlocks (release) and goes to the safety latch. However, when I shut the hood, it may not latch. Only the safety latch catches. Sometimes it does, sometimes is does not. I have to push the release leaver to the full shut position. Sometimes the release leaver only returns to about 2/3 or 3/4 of the distance. I used to have a digital Gen 2 Durango manual. However, computer crashed and it was lost. Otherwise, would look in manual.
Questions:

Is there a spring under the dash to return the hood release leaver to full close position?

Or is there a spring under the hood for the hood release leaver? There is a spring for the hood hatch. That spring keeps the hood all the way down and shut.
