’John’ writes an advice column for a local newspaper.
My apologies if this has been posted before…

Dear John,
I hope you can help me. The other day I headed off to work, leaving my husband in the house watching TV. The car stalled, and eventually broke down about a mile from the house. I walked back home to get some help from my husband. When I got home, I couldn’t believe my eyes! He was in the bedroom with our neighbor’s 19 year old daughter! He is 34, I’m 32 and we’ve been married for 10 years. When I confronted him, he admitted to having an affair with her for the past six months. He won’t go for counseling, I’m afraid I’m a wreck, and need advice urgently. Can you please help? Signed..Sheila

Dear Sheila,
A car stalling after being driven a short distance can be caused by a variety of faults in the engine. Start by checking for dirt in the fuel line. If it is clear, inspect the vacuum hoses on the manifold. Then check all ground wires for good connections. If none of these are faulty, I would change the fuel pump because it probably is not supplying enough pressure to the fuel injectors. Good Luck! Signed..John
