This week on The Best of Car Talk, John can only keep his car from stalling by opening the hood and touching the engine. Does this fix have anything to do with the fact that John’s a Catholic priest? Elsewhere, Tom is looking for a “girlfriend car," but can’t decide if his wife should be able to drive it; Rick’s friends are telling him his family road trip from Kansas to Disneyland may end in Wichita if he doesn’t get a valve job; and way up north in Alaska, Linda needs to retro-fit her ATV so her sled dogs will get their off-season workouts. All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
