Gender equity comes to Car Talk Plaza this week, as male and female callers are both advised to respond to spousal auto-critiques with a polite, but firm, "Shut up, Hon."
Elsewhere, Stuart's Camry is making a scary metallic quacking sound, and his mechanic is replacing things that couldn't be causing it; Bill is wondering if Radiator Stop Leak will work on his wooden hot tub; and Liz the Librarian is about to learn why she shouldn't make jack-rabbit starts.
Also, for Mother's Day, one mom's tale of a teenager to be greatly admired - and feared. All this, and lots more, this week on Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: May 7, 2011]
