This week on Car Talk: You can lead a Magliozzi to nature, but you can't make him stop looking for a cappuccino stand, as Tom and Ray offer vastly differing recollections of their foray to the Muir Woods. Happily, they'll carve out a few seconds to tell Colleen why her truck is melting air filters. Meanwhile, Dan in Oregon may soon find his faith tested by his Civic's coolant "anomaly"; John in Michigan treats his Escort to a clutch and is rewarded with a new noise; and Jennifer in Seattle needs an exit strategy from hanging with her husband's new BFFs--the Miata Owners Club. All this, plus a mathematical Puzzler in limerick form, and lots more, this week on Car Talk.
