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 gone more than a mile down the road when my 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 lady. I am 32, my husband is 34, and
we have been married for twelve years. When I confronted him, he
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 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


Distraught in North Carolina

Dear Distraught,

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 carburetor float chamber.

I hope this helps.
