This week on Car Talk, Jeryldine's car is infested with spiders, and she has no idea how to get rid of them. If she follows Tom and Ray's advice, her car will also be full of birds, bats, lizards, and, most likely, still spiders. Elsewhere, after losing his girlfriend and her car, Glen's friend suggested he browse his neighbors' backyards for a replacement--car, that is. Will he find the Cabrio of his dreams, up on blocks? Also, Lacy thinks her Accord's engine is trying to escape, one piece at a time; Barry's dealer would be happy to work on his stuck parking brake, if Barry can only get the car to move from his garage; and on Stump the Chumps, we find out if Tom and Ray helped quiet Lisa's screeching Civic enough so she could talk to her cute neighbor. All this, plus the first Automotive Puzzler of the season, and more, this week on Car Talk.
