    Why men shouldn't write advice columns

    Why Men don't write advice colums...

    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 neighbours daughter. I am 32, my husband is 34, and the neighbours daughter is 22. 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 months.

    I told him to stop or I would leave him. He was sacked 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 counselling 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 that there is no dirt 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.


    Walter.

    I fail to see what was wrong with the advice given, as she obviously has a problem with her car.

    I'm not sure Walter's advice is all that good, he failed to mention a fuel pressure regulator and the throttle positioning sensor.

    Since most modern vehicles are computer controlled, that might be the problem. Have a service tech put it on a machine to see what the exact problem might be. As others have stated, bad fuel pump, lines etc and those need to be checked. Behavior of the neighbors 22 year old daughter needs to be addressed, she obviously is out of control and in need of counciling.

    I would have told my wife that I am not a mechanic.

    Clearly she should have given the make, model and year of the car. If it is fuel injected the injectors could be clogged.
