No idle without choke
I have a 1987 Mazda 626 with 1.6 carburettor engine and a manual choke. I've been having some trouble with it idling - it'll only idle when the choke is pulled out all the way. Otherwise it runs OK, though fuel consumption is a bit poor (25-30mpg, probably due to the choke). As soon as the choke is pushed back i... 1 Jul 2010 17:53

Apparently extend and contract them a few times in the orientation they will be when on the car before fitting.

Sticky wheel?
Hope this isn't too off topic. I'm not sure if I'm turning into a snail but in this weather my steering wheel gets horribly sticky. I don't suppose you can help me with my metamorphosing into a snail problem but does anybody have a good steering wheel cleaning method. Flash liquid seems to leave it just as ... 4 Jul 2010 04:46
