SOURCE: replacing heater core

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable, then drain the radiator.
CAUTION When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by the ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.
  1. Remove the heater hoses from the core. The top hose connects to the water pump and the lower hose goes to the thermostat housing.
  2. Remove the cables and all electrical connections from the heater and defroster assembly.
  3. Remove the nuts from the core case studs located on the firewall.
  4. From inside the car, remove the case-to-firewall mounting screws and also the heater and defroster assembly.
  5. Remove the retaining springs and core.
To install:
  1. Install the core and retaining spring, making sure the core-to-case sealer is in good shape.
  2. Install the heater and defroster assembly, then install and tighten the case-to-firewall mounting screws.
  3. Install the nuts to the core case studs on the firewall.
  4. Install the cables and engage all electrical connectors to the heater and defroster assembly.
  5. Engage the heater hoses to the core.
  6. Connect the negative battery cable, then refill the engine cooling system and check for leaks.

SOURCE: how to replace the headlight on a 1987 chevy el

Check this GM Chevy Mid-Size Cars 1964-1988 procedure from Repair Guide...


Headlights - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
If some or all of the headlight bulbs being replaced still operate, refer to the headlight aiming procedure later in this section to ease checking or adjustment of the headlights after installation.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Loosen and remove the retaining screws, then remove the headlight bezel from the front of the vehicle.
  3. On most models, the headlight bulb retaining ring is only held on by retaining screws. If so, remove the bulb retaining ring screws. These are the screws which hold the thin metal ring which holds the bulb against the adjusting plate. Do not touch the two headlight aiming screws, at the center of the top and side of the retaining ring (these screws will have different heads), or the headlight aim will have to be re-adjusted.

One way to identify the retaining ring screws is that they will be threaded through a lip on the outer edge of the retaining ring before threading through the adjusting plate. One the other hand, the adjustment screws are threaded through the adjustment plate and a spring loaded holder underneath it.

  1. Some later model vehicles will use a spring on the retaining ring. If so equipped, disengage the spring from the retaining ring, using a cotter pin removal tool, then remove the retaining ring screws.
  2. Pull the bulb and ring forward and then separate them. Unplug the electrical connector from the rear of the bulb and remove the bulb from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Plug the new bulb into the electrical connector.
  2. Position the retaining ring over the bulb, then install the assembly to the adjusting plate. Secure using the retaining screws and, if applicable, the spring.
  3. Install and secure the headlight bezel.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable.

SOURCE: how do i replace the

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.

How do I know if options from a 1976 el camino will transfer and fit in my 1976 monte carlo?


In the 70's GM was notorious for simplicity. One size fits all, so it is highly likely that all the Monte Carlo options will fit onto the El Camino unless they are for behind the cab. To double check you will have to look at sales literature from both and compare option lists.

Are 1983 el camino bumpers the same as 1983 caballero


Yes. GM made all Chevrolet El Camino's and GMC Caballero's excactly the same, save for badge and trim packages. You can interchange parts with El Camino/Malibu/Monte Carlo cars and some S-10 trim peices will fit. But all three Cars will interchange interior parts. as for the bumpers, Only El camino/Malibu/Caballero will fit without modifying them. A simple Bolt-On and go.
