Dear John, I hope you can help me here.
The other day I set off for work leaving my husband in the house watching the TV.
My car stalled, and then it broke down about a mile down the road, and I had to walk back home to get my husband’s help.
When I got home I couldn’t believe my eyes. He was in the bedroom with our neighbor’s daughter. I am 32, my husband is 34 and the neighbor’s daughter is 19. We have been married for 10 years.
When I confronted him, he broke down and admitted that he’d 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?
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 injectors.
I hope this helps,
