#1931: Eggs Prestone This week on the Best of Car Talk, can an omelet save an engine? A friend suggested that Sasha use eggs in his cracked radiator. Was this advice to actually stop the leak, or just to give Sasha something to snack on while waiting for the tow truck? Elsewhere, John put wooden blocks under the gas pedal to slow down his leadfoot son; but is worried that the speeding tickets savings may need to go towards a new transmission. Also, Debra may need to resort to whacking the steering wheel to start her car; Ron's horn sounds when he turns his steering wheel; on Stump the Chumps, we find out if Heidi had to lock her husband in the cellar to keep him from changing her timing belt; and, are Tom and Ray's stupid questions really profound existential Philosophy? All this and more, this week on the Best of Car Talk.
