My 1985 Mazda GLC just started running crappy one afternoon. Wouldn't idle at all. Long story short.. what ended up fixing it was lots of hard driving and excessive revving. Sometimes I'm glad the car wasn't equipped with a tachometer... hahaha
1985 Mazda GLC 3-door hatchback
So here she is,
"She had me at hello" - a little curbside love! anyway....
So its a 1985 mazda GLC 3-door hatch.
4spd manual, manual windows, radio delete option, no tilt steering, no
power steering, no a/c, it does however have working windshield wipers and
rear defrost... haha
Car still has original spare, INCREDIBLY little rust... yeah, the bumpers
are bent, but no big deal...
It runs and drives incredibly well, not to mention BETTER than it should
considering its a 25 year old car.
This Old Car: Mazda GLC Checkup
Popped in to visit Drew. He's the proud owner of the GLC. And he's been
taking really good care of it... the chrome is now spotless.. and the
brakes have been given attention. Seems to be enjoying it.
We just took care of a little oil leak up-top.
what a Good Little Car!
Clean a Carburetor Without Rebuilding it and Save Money
Do you own a car or truck that has a carburetor. Are you trying to get your
car to pass a smog check. Do you think you need a tune up.
Have you noticed that on youtube that other videos show you how to clean
the carburetor choke, but that does not clean anything inside the
carburetor. So the other videos don't really help you make your car run
In this example the Holley 2150 2 barrel carburetor, on a 1979 FORD 302 or
5.0 litter engine.
How to clean a carburetor cheaply and without having to remove it from the
engine. This is a way that I avoided having to rebuild my carburetor due to
it not working correctly. The problem that I had with mine was that when I
gave it the gas it had a dead spot. In other words I'd be going along and
give it the gas and it would cough and stall. A friend showed me that by
only squirting carburetor cleaner into the fuel bowl and running the engine
that it would clean it out.
I tried what he told me to do. I ran about half a can of carb cleaner
through the carburetor with the engine running and then went for a drive. I
got down the road about a mile and entered into the freeway. There was a
car coming fast and I was not up to speed and I gave it the gas and it
stalled like it used to. I put the transmission into 2nd gear and floored
it and that blew out what ever was plugging it up and it has run like new
since. This solved the problem I was having, does it sound like a problem
you have. Give it a try.
If you try this and it works then you have fixed your problem for under 5
dollars, and won't spend hundreds of dollars having a mechanic work on your
car. It also helps if you do this before going for a smog check, it will
help you pass.

Mazda 626 - IAC Cleaning Part 1 of 3
Visit Mazda626.net for more information, images of plunger assembly, and
discussions about this video.
FIRST THING TO DO: REMOVE THE THROTTLE BODY. The IAC will come out with
it. It's much easier to work on outside of the car instead of sweating
your ass off in the middle of summer! I actually spent about 6-8 hours
trying to remove 1 stripped screw. This car is 16 years old now so cutting
off bolts and screws comes with the territory. Wish I knew the other half
of the screws were not threaded before I started to dissemble it. It is
not possible clean the IAC in place you must remove it. I also recommend
removing the throttle body FIRST! Like always, I learned that the hard
