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 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 carburetor float chamber.

I hope this helps.

Walter

Might also be a good idea to get some carb cleaner and give the jets a good spray as well. Could be varnish build up in the jets themselves causing low fuel flow. You may also want to check the distributor cap for build up on the contacts. Anybody else have and ideas on how to fix this problem?

I get the funny feeling there is more to this than just a car problem? I think she might also be asking about decorating the bedroom Hey, women sometimes do that, they hint and don't come right out and say what they really want. grin

Men don't write advice columns because I a man and men view things different and feel no need to take the advice of others ..........specially a advice columnist
That's what makes us unique LOL ability to reject help or outside advice
and men don't like to ask for directions eitherlaugh

What do I know I'm just a man it takes a while for advice to sink in tongue
