This week on Car Talk, Mike is about to leave Anchorage, and embark on a two-year sailing trip. But, he doesn't know if his lovingly restored Land Rover can survive two Alaskan Winters without him. Will Cosmoline or late-night TV save the day?
Elsewhere, Eileen is having trouble starting her Celica, and thinks the problem is related to her "cute little foot," and Darryl's Isuzu only runs smoothly when the Check Engine light comes on.
Also, Amanda's dad gifted her an Infiniti which is way too nice for her, her infant, and her dog, and she needs an exit strategy. And, will a strategically placed blanket and light bulb really reduce Judy's engine wear by 95%? All this, and lots more, this week on Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: October 13, 2012]
