This week's Car Talk kicks off with one of our best-known ways to brighten the dark days of winter--a few choice quotes from Groucho Marx. Then, it's off to our nation's capitol, where Jerelee's Toyota Matrix is making noises not unlike Tommy after a rough repast. Fortunately, her problem could have a rare "instant Car Talk fix," but she might have a little too much fun in the process.
Also, turning wine into wiper fluid may not be a biblical miracle, but is it a good way to spare a less-than-competent home vintner's feelings? On Stump the Chumps, find out if Tommy led Jason and his pals down a dead end road. All this, a new puzzler celebrating the Presidential Inauguration, and why a DIY plug-in conversion may not be such a good idea, this week on Car Talk.
