On this week's encore edition of Car Talk
, goat rescuer Richard is having a problem with his 4-legged tenants. They're fond of climbing onto cars--especially the one that belongs to Richard's friend Doris. So Richard's considering a mild form of shock therapy. (On the goats, mind you.) Will his plan get the Click and Clack stamp of approval? Meanwhile, Heather in Washington State is planning a cross-country drive to Maine in an '85 Subaru that's dieseling, shifting poorly, and making a mysterious, "clunk" sound. Is she really interested in fixing it, or is she just looking for allies to help convince her folks to buy her a new ride? Also, a listener's incredibly backhanded plea for civility from his fellow Car Talk
hate-mailers, a Mazda owner wonders if dry ice can help de-dentify his car, and we hear the tale of the night Tommy drove on three wheels. All this and more, this week on Car Talk
. [Broadcast Date: August 8, 2009]
