hey guy's new here im trying anything here because i cant afford a tow and a mechanic,so heres my problem i have a 86 subaru gl wagon its carburated,i sprayed some carb cleaner in the carb to clean it out,it was idiling a little high about 1300 rpms,so i turned the scew under the carb the one on the left a couple of turns to idle it down,that helped then it died,so i started it back up and it went from 3500rpms to redline at at start up,been doing this for 2 days,so this is what i have done to fix it that hasnt worked,called many mechanics only one would help me,he said to check the seconddary side of the carb that something was stuck,i tried that put a screw driver down there and pushed open that flap but nothing,and i checked the throttle cable it was fine,anybody have any other ideas im really open right now thanks
