This week on Car Talk, because you demanded it (well, one of you demanded it), Tom and Ray explain the latest addition to the Car Talk lexicon, "shnerdling." We'll give you a hint: it involves a flight to Iceland, and an overdose of lutefisk.
Closer to home, the new owner of a Ford pick-up discovers a bonus: a 100 pound propane tank strapped to the undercarriage. Is it safe to drive, or should he stick to grilling burgers down there? It's this week's Call of the Week.
Also, the auto-relational dispute list grows by two: first, there's Peter who wants to know why his wife won't let him take their infant in the backseat of his Jaguar XK8. Then there's Sarah, who's about to find out if her boyfriend loves his Jeep more than her.
And, on Stump the Chumps, we find out what made a Volvo start Singin' in the Rain. All this, plus a new Puzzler from the Laws of Physics series, and lots more, this week on Car Talk.
