Dear Adrian,
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 the bedroom with the
neighbour's daughter. I am 32, my husband is 34, and the neighbour's
daughter is 22. We have been married for 10 years.
When I confronted him, he broke down and admitted they had been having
an affair for 6 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 & 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

Heather

Dear Heather
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 solve the problem, it could be that the fuel pump
itself is faulty, causing low delivery pressure to the injectors.
I hope this helps,

Adrian
