America's funniest auto mechanics take calls from weary car owners all over the country, and crack wise while they diagnose Dodges and dismiss Diahatsus. You don't have to know anything about cars to love this one hour weekly laugh fest.
||#1409: The Curly Package||This week on Car Talk, did Howard get the special Three Stooges option on his Lincoln, or is there another reason why it sounds like Curly whenever he gets out of the car. Elsewhere, Tom got conflicting advice on his Taurus' flashing oil light, and he's wondering who's the genius, and who's the quack. So, who better to ask than two genius quacks? Also, John's Land Cruiser may need a new steering box, or his mechanic may just be looking for another John-funded trip to Vegas; and on Stump the Chumps, we find out if Betsy's truck was really spewing gas because of mud chiggers. All this, plus how one listener's attempt to solve the Puzzler resulted in a police house call, this week on Car Talk.||3/1/14||Free||View In iTunes|
||#1408: Old Moses Blew Beets||This week on Car Talk, beloved dog meets beloved car, and the results aren't good, as Will's dog Moses gets car sick in his truck; specifically, into the defroster vents. Can Will remove the chunks and the smell, or does he need to sell the truck to someone with a really bad sense of smell? Elsewhere, Kris' husband is a dedicated recycler. Unfortunately, he insists on crushing cans by driving over them, and the noise has Kris wondering if she needs to recycle her spouse. Also, what could make an already brutal Maine winter even worse? Eric's truck horn, which starts honking in zero degree weather, in the middle of the night. And, can Tom and Ray cure novice mechanic Jeremy of his bolt-breaking habit? All this and more, this week on Car Talk.||2/22/14||Free||View In iTunes|
Excellent show... funny... insightful... informative... and the puzzler is great. Family friendly show. Glad to see if finally as a podcast. So I guess we can expect to hear... "And don't podcast like my brother!"
I love Car Talk!
These guys are great listening whether you're working out, listening at home or driving. My dad got me hooked many years ago. He used to record the shows on tape. I'd always take a boxful of casettes with me when I drove to/from college 1100 miles from home. They're entertaining and educational. I feel quite confident in my ability to diagnose a bad master cylinder or a worn fan belt... They have some material that is kind of cheesy but the hour is well worth it. It's truly a part of my life. I hope they never retire! Listen in...you won't be disappointed!
