Most of the time when the hood doesn't sit correctly and you have exhausted all the adjustments you can, it then tends to be worn out hinges. If you can basically push down the corner having the problem and everything lines up correct but after driving or opening the hood and closing it again, it sit high until you push down, about 100% the hinges have enough play in them from wear.

Replace the hinges, readjust and you should be fine after that.
