Why Men Should NOT Write Advice Columns

A woman sent this to a male advice columnist:

Dear John,
I hope you can help me. The other day, I set for work, leaving my husband at home watching TV. My car stalled and broke down about a mile away from home, I had to walk back home to get my husband's help as I couldn't reach him on the phone. When I got back home, I couldn't believe my eyes when I found my husband in our bed with our neighbour's daughter.

I am 32, my husband is 34 and the girl is 19yrs old. We have been married for 10 years. Although he broke down, apologised and confessed they have been sleeping together for 6months, he refuses to go counselling and I'm a wreck. I need your advice urgently, pls help.


This was the columnist's answer :

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, try 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 really hope this helps.
