This is why men shouldn't write advice columns:

Dear Abie,
The other day I set off for work, leaving my husband in the house watching TV. I hadn't gone more than a mile away when my engine conked out and the car shuddered to a halt. I walked back home, only to find my husband making love to our neighbor. He was let go from his job six months ago, and he says he has been feeling increasingly depressed and worthless. I love him very much, but I don't know if I can trust him anymore. What should I do?
Dear Frustrated,
A car stalling can be caused by a variety of faults with the engine. Check that there is no debris from the fuel line. If it is clear, check the jubilee clips holding the vacuum pipes onto the inlet manifold. Or it could be that the fuel pump itself is faulty, causing low delivery pressure to the carburetor float chamber.

I hope this helps.
