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 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 neighbours' daughter.
I'm 32, my husband is 34, and the neighbours' 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'd leave him.
He said he has been feeling increasingly depressed and worthless, as he
was let go from his job six months ago, and this affair happened because
of these feelings.

I love him very much, but ever since I gave him the ultimatum he has
become increasingly distant.
He won't go to counselling and I'm afraid I can't get through to him

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's 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,
