Why Men Shouldn't Write Advice Columns

Dear John,

I hope you can help me. The other day, I set off for work, leav­ing my hus­band in the house watch­ing TV. My car stalled, and then it broke down about a mile down the road, and I had to walk back to get my husband's help. When I got home, I couldn't believe my eyes. He was in our bed­room with our neigh­bors daugh­ter! I am 32 and my hus­band is 34 and the neigh­bors daugh­ter is 19. We have been mar­ried for 10 years. When I con­fronted him, he broke down and admit­ted they had been hav­ing an affair for the past six months. He won't go to coun­sel­ing, and I'm afraid I am a wreck and need advice urgently. 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 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.
