It is the insulation that seals the vents to the dash, it is just dry rotted and will continue to so, it is somewhat normal as it occurs often in all cars. Hope this helped tim

While changing the spark plugs on the mazda6 i noticed some spark plugs were practically drenched in oil, one seemed to have engine coolant, what can be reasons for this? Head Gasket?

sea foam is a type of foam created by the agitation of seawater,particularly when it contains higher concentrations of dissolved organic matter that will just clogg an block the engine. your head gasket is gone you will need to replace the head gasket an probably flush the engine too... Hope this helps

What is the difference between evaporator core vs. heater core

Very good question. A heater core takes heated water directly from the engine and forces it through a matrix of flat metal plates (like on a motorbike cylinder head), a fan is turned on to force cold air through the hot matrix, blowing hot air into the car cabin.
An evaporator doesn't. It compresses a chemical gas (separate to the engine cooling system) in a circuit of pipes which then evaporate in a different pressured chamber, the rapid depressurisation causes the chemical to super cool so when the same fan is switched on it draws super cooled air from the evaporator/condenser circuit.
The result is ice cool air blown about the cabin.
Simple experiment : Buy a can of Butane Gas, squeeze the nipple to release the gas quickly (stay away from flames !!!) after a few seconds the can will super cool, the water droplets stuck to the can side are a result of extreme temp drops, the can will freeze on the outside ! You now know how air conditioning works ! Give yourself a star. Now make us a perpetual motor.

Learning is fun. Good Luck Friend Red.

1999 Mazda 626 is blowing small black particles our of the ac vent. What is this and how do I fix it?

Most likely the air filter located in under the dashboard has rotted apart. This will continue until all the pieces have blown out or you change the filter.
