    This week on The Best of Car Talk, Rick's diesel Rabbit ran out of fuel and the only liquid Rick had on hand was a bottle of scotch. Could he have poured the scotch into the tank or would Rick have been better off drinking it and waiting for the tow truck? Elsewhere, a tree fell on Murli's Corolla (we think it made a sound), and he doesn't know whether to replace the roof or have it straightened; Sally's steering column is sending smoke signals; and Kerry needs help navigating the "Pit of Despair," a giant water-filled pothole in her building's parking lot.

    This week on The Best of Car Talk, Tom and Ray venture far afield as they consider one listener's idea that could revolutionize elevator operations (within the confines of still going up and down) - if anyone can make heads or tails of it. Later, on Stump the Chumps, we find out if our hosts helped Jeff's bread maker resume making loaves instead of hockey pucks. To mollify NPR, we'll also wrestle with a few car questions.

    This week on Car Talk, pothole season is in full swing. After her Toyota was almost swallowed by one crater, Sara's wondering what happens to the departed asphalt. Elsewhere, Steve drove over a bowling ball outside a topless bar, which sounds like a great joke set-up, but the punch line could be very expensive. Also, Shanthi is ready to buy a car, but has no place to park it. Does she need to move, or should she forget about the car and keep mooching rides from her friends? And, how can Johanna make sure her summer of teepee living doesn't start with her car getting washed away by spring flooding? All this and more, this week on Car Talk.

    You send just one of your brother's heaps to the crusher, and you never hear the end of it. But this week on The Best of Car Talk, Patti's mom's attempt to drive her Datsun from Houston to Boston may spare Ray from ever having to hear the phrase "sleek black beauty" again. Elsewhere, Casey's career making bagpipes may be the only way to rid his Civic of the garter snakes that have taken residence.

    This week on The Best of Car Talk, between Being and Nothingness is—a loose heat shield? One listener suggests Tom and Ray's baffling car advice is actually the dawning of a new line of deep philosophical thought. Elsewhere, Mary Jane hopes the guys can help save her marriage by not answering her husband's call about his Ford Fairlane; Sandy may need to be bribed to get a diagnosis for her noisy Accord; David parked his Civic in the garage for a week and now the parking brake is stuck; and Barry can't understand why his Mercedes is a bug magnet.

    This week on Car Talk, Dave has discovered an electrical anomaly: his Audi's keyless remote works better when he points it at his chin rather than his car. Fortunately, he's come to the right place…for a completely bogus explanation. Elsewhere, Brett's Camry is giving him enough electrical shocks to turn him into a walking Van de Graaff Generator; Spencer learned why you should never touch your lug nuts in public on a hot day; and Beth's Accord is exhibiting all the symptoms of a bad clutch, with just one problem: it's an automatic.

    Everyone knows a joke is less funny if you have to explain it. But if the joke wasn't funny in the first place, it's not really a problem. So, this week on The Best of Car Talk, Tom and Ray explain the origin of one of their favorites, a "full Chicago." In matters automotive, Caroline is concerned about her Toyota's low idle and her husband's insistence they wear bicycle helmets in the car for safety.

    This week on The Best of Car Talk, one listener corrects the record on what NPR’s Sylvia Poggioli really says when Tom and Ray besmirch her network by their very presence. You may share Sylvia’s horror when you hear our hosts struggle to figure out why Patty’s MG will only travel 2 feet at a time.

    This week on The Best of Car Talk, Brenda's shoulder belt got stuck in her jacket zipper effectively trapping her in her car. Embarrassing? Sure, but not as embarrassing as Tom and Ray's friend who tried to drive her car from the back seat. Elsewhere, Ben's band wants to take his vintage Volvo on tour from Seattle, and wants to know if he can book any shows beyond, say, Tacoma. Also, Albee wants to sell a sputtering and stalling LeBaron to his mother-in-law, which is probably one way to guarantee she never visits; Judy swears her Olds is making noise.

    This week on The Best of Car Talk, Gloria's mechanic told her not to put her car into reverse first thing in the morning. Does Gloria need to build a circular driveway so she can follow this advice, or can it be consigned to the Land of Old Wives Tales? Elsewhere, LaDell just started selling cars and already made his first mistake, bragging about a car's torque without knowing what torque is. Can Tom and Ray help him avoid future faux pas?

    Dana's Jetta jerks in 1st Gear, and Tom and Ray have a highly technical explanation. Elsewhere, Mark thinks his "straighten the curves" driving technique is more efficient and saves wear and tear. It's also driving his wife crazy, which may be another plus as far as Mark is concerned. Also, Suzy checks in with the final report on her attempted drive across Mexico in a VW Vanagon; Andy felt like he was driving naked and after confirming he was wearing pants, determined his automatic seat belt wasn't so automatic anymore.

Elsewhere, Faith just relocated from Maine to Alaska because she was longing for snow. Her Subaru seems displeased with the move, though, as it's begun making an alarming noise.

Elsewhere, Bridget's car is making a whisking sound that's only a little less scary than Tom and Ray's attempts to mimic it; Pam's Volvo is smoking more than her husband and arousing the ire of the Amherst, VA police department; and Johnny's attempt to fix his Jeep may require him to avoid wearing rayon pants. Also, new research that demonstrates the male brain's oscillation between pure genius, and pure incompetence.
