The third-generation Chevrolet Camaro appeared in 1982, at around the same time as its sister car, the Pontiac Firebird. It was available with numerous engines, starting with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder motor, a 2.8-liter V6, a 3.0-liter V6, a 5.0-liter V8 and a 5.7-liter V8. There were four- and five-speed manual transmissions, plus three- and four-speed automatics. The third-generation Camaro was much lighter than its predecessor, to the tune of more than 200kg. Tweaks were minor throughout the car’s early years, then in 1986 a Camaro convertible joined the range. At Haynes, we have an extensive range of Chevrolet repair manuals and online maintenance procedures available for professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts.
