This week on Car Talk, Anne in Texas learns one of the hazards of marriage to a rodeo cowboy, when a horse decides to make her Mazda's steering wheel its lunch. Is she in line for a whole new steering pod, or just a few dozen rolls of duct tape? Also, disappearing oil means a disappearing bank balance for Jayne in Ohio; the adventurous (and cheap) way to deal with an inaccurate gas gauge; and a mechanic offers to make an engine run forever--by adding a tachometer?! All this, plus another round of Stump the Chumps, and lots more, this week on Car Talk.
