most likely a weak fuel pump or a clogged filter. Check fuel pressure with a gauge or as its bogging down spray brake cleaner in the Throttle Body. If this allows it to increase RPM then its the pump or filter.

El Camino was not one of the choices you gave me. Where is the washer pump on a 1987 El Camino ?


not in the bottom of the WASHER FLUID RESERVOIR. It is mounted to the firewall. It is attached to the wiper motor.

86 el camino stalls under load


As mentioned above, engine could be starving for fuel; but
also consider ignition system - as engine makes more power, maximum cylinder pressures increase. A higher spark voltage is then needed to ignite mixture (at a few degrees before top dead center... top of piston travel).
If coil is weak, plugs fouled, or plug gap too wide, adequate spark may not occur. This may cause missing,
loss of power, sometimes backfiring (backfiring may occur if timing is off, or intake valve leaky, also). If you replace the fuel filter, 'kit' the carb, but problem remains,
look to ignition system.

Diagnostic process - put a fuel pressure gauge in line, where fuel line enters carb. Rig so can see gauge, while driving. Have a passenger watch fuel pressure as you drive; especially while accelerating. If fuel pressure drops during acceleration, then its either fuel pump or filter. If pressure remains stable, consider carb issue.
If possible, test with exhaust gas analyzer, while engine
under load (possibly at an emissions test place). If lean under acceleration, its a carb problem. If not, look at
ignition system (emission test diagnostics should help here, also). Oh, and one thing I did once.... forgot to release parking brake..... duh.

Best of luck !

What is the fuel tank size for a 1986 el camino V6 4.3 F.I.


What size fuel tank????

Well, just for kicks and grins, I checked several parts suppliers catalogs and found that all they provide are 22 gallon tanks, any size engine. The Haynes book DOES NOT provide this info as best I could figure it out. 86 owner bilz

Cannot get fuel in the car using epa nozzle


Check the gas tank vent tube, it must be bent or blocked, so it is not allowing air to escape as gas enters the tank, resulting in the pump kicking off, and being unable to put fuel in the el camino.
