Why Men Don't Write Advice Columns

Dear Walter,

I hope you can help me here. The other day, I set off

for work leaving my husband in the house watching the TV as usual.

I hadn't driven more than a mile down the road, when the engine conked out

and the car shuddered to a halt. I walked back home to get my husband's help.

When I got home, I couldn't believe my eyes. He was in our bedroom

with the neighbor's daughter. I am 32, my husband is 34, and the

neighbor's daughter is 19. We have been married for ten years.

When I confronted him, he broke down and admitted that

they had been having an affair for the past six mon

ths. I told him

to stop or I would leave him. He was let go from his job six months ago,

and he says he has been feeling increasingly depressed and worthless.

I love him very much, but ever since I gave him the ultimatum, he has

become increasingly distant. He won't go to counseling, and I'm

afraid I can't get through to him anymore.

Can you please help?

Sincerely, Sheila

Dear Sheila:

A car stalling after being driven a short distance can be caused

by a variety of faults with the engine. Start by checking to see that

there is no debris in the fuel line. If it is clear, check the vacuum pipes

and hoses on the intake manifold, and also check all grounding wires.

If none of these approaches solves the problem, it could be that the fuel

pump itself is faulty, causing low delivery pressure to the injectors.

I hope this helps...
