Agony Uncle

Post by jtonline » Fri Oct 04, 2019 4:12 pm

Why men shouldn't write advice columns in newspapers:

"Dear John,

I hope you can help me. The other day, I set off for work, leaving my husband in the house watching TV. My CX-3 stalled, and then it broke down about a mile down the road, and I had to walk back to get my husband's help. When I got home, I couldn't believe my eyes. He was in our bedroom with our neighbour's daughter!

I'm 32 and my husband is 34 and our neighbour's daughter is 19. We have been married for 10 years now. When I confronted him, he broke down and admitted that he had been having an affair for the past six months. He won't go to counselling, and I'm afraid I am a wreck and need advice urgently. Can you please help?



Dear Shiela,

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 the wiring connectors. If none of these approaches solves the problem, it could be that your fuel pump is faulty, causing low delivery pressure to the injectors.

I hope this helps,
