I just fix the same problem on my 83 el camino today. The indicator is just a plastic pin connected to a wire and uses a small spring to return to park. I took out the dash board pannel in front of the gauges. There are two 7mm screws under the indicator, remove those. Drop indicator down, check to see if the plastic hoop the wire connects to has broken off. If so I connected my wire to the hook on the return spring, every thing works fine now. I had to fix this to get it threw Maryland inspection.

This does not have a cable persay, but a thin nylon string that runs from the indicator needle to the pull clip. If this is on the column shift you will need to remove the steering wheel and turn signal group to expose the string and the little clip that attaches it.

If you have to replace the string try different lengths until you get it right, this is pretty adjustable.

Most likely, your in-tank fuel filter has gotten clogged, or the intake has gotten clogged. See if you can either pull it out, or if that is impossible (I'd hope not!) get a tank repair specialist to do it. But given it's getting closer to the "DIYer" age, it should allow you to do it yourself.

How do i replace the dashboard light bulb for a 1985 el camino


you need to disconnect the speedometer then remove the 6 or 8 screws that hold the instrument panel to the dash.if its an automatic you will have to unhook the shift indicator cable from the shift colume.then pull the instrument panel out of the dash,turn the panel upside down and you will see the bulb sockets.replace all the bulbs at this time so you won`t have to do this again for another bulb.when hooking up the shift indicator cable make sure it indicates the properly selected gear when moving the shifter to each gear position.

This is a snap on cover that covers your old one without it's removal,just paint it to match.Now you can get these from a lot of different places and I'm NOT recommending any business or company,just saying this is an easy way to get a nice looking dash without replacing it.
