    Why men should not write advice columns

    Dear John,
    I hope you can help me. The other day I set off to 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 could not 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 marrried for 10 years. When I confronted him, he broke down and admitted they have 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 help please?
    Sincerely, Shiela

    Dear Shiela,
    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 lines and hoses on the intake manifold and also check all grounding wires. If none of these approches solves the problem, it could be the fuel pump itself is faulty, causing low delivery pressure to the injectors.
    I hope this helps, John
    Dave

    Need to be more clear

    Stalled and then broke down?............ I think John is going to need more clarity to get of the bottom of the real problem. Is Shiela calling the stalling condition a break down or are there two separate occasions she is referencing?

    It's a bad ignition module, and a dead battery. What's wrong with you guys?

    I agree he is gonna need to get more info. It might be a fuel problem but at the same time it could be electrical.
    Its all fun and games till someone loses a nut!
