    "ASK MIKE"

    Dear Mike,
    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
    neighbors daughter. I am 32, my husband is 34, and the neighbor's 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 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 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,
    Mike

    I consider that a good answer being somewhat mechanically inclined. Now lets get back to the 22 year old neighbor, LOL.
