The El Camino was Chevrolet’s foray into the coupe/pickup market during the late 60s, which competed with the Ford Ranchero. The El Camino range typically featured V6 and V8, as well as six cylinder in-line engines. Given the age of this model, weekly checks of engine oil, coolant, washer fluid and battery water levels are recommended. Biannual checks should include exhaust system, fuel system components and suspension, among other areas. Our fully researched El Camino repair manual will provide details on full-scale servicing, routine maintenance and comprehensive breakdown guidance. You can also choose from print and online versions.
