SOURCE: Front Main Seal is blown on the Transmission

You have to remove the transmission, remove the torque converter to access the seal. Most likely the bushing behind the seal is worn out allowing fluid to leak past the seal. After the trans. is out, take it to a trans. shop. It requires a special tool to change the bushing. Seems like a bunch of work for $10.00 in parts. The rear main seal requires pulling the pan to access it. When the trans. is out, this is the time to replace the rear main seal on the engine.

Ignition Switch grey_line.gif Inspect | Test | Replace The ignition switch is usually mounted to the steering column and is operated by a linkage rod.
NOTE On column-mounted ignition switches, don't confuse the switch with the lock cylinder and keys. The ignition switch is not normally visible.
On some vehicles, the steering column support has to be removed and the column lowered to find the ignition switch. On others, the switch is accessible under the dash.

SOURCE: Cannot locate the horn relay on my 85 El Camino.

Found these documents for you.

85 ElCamino1
85 ElCamino2

In fact there IS a horn relay. I have circled the circuit you are looking for in red.
I would search under the dash on driver's side.

Find the Ignition Harness and follow the wires back to the firewall.

Please download and save these pics to your hard drive - as they are stored on my personal FTP storage, and i will remove them in 24 hours.

Does my 1985 el camino have to have check engine light


In regions where smog checks are required to register your vehicle, YES. In regions where smog checks are not required, you should fix the CHECK ENGINE light anyway, as it is an important warning of engine issues.
