    This week on Car Talk, Jill has noticed a raft of men picking their noses in their cars. Is this topic too juvenile and tasteless even for Tom and Ray? Are you kidding? Tune in as they dive deep to try to explain why a man’s car is his nostril's sanctuary. In matters a bit more serious, Paul’s car is smoking like a chimney,and he’s hoping to find the right additive cocktail that will get it through to spring; Bernie and Rollie’s test drive at a dealer ended with an encounter with a light pole, and now the dealer is trying to get them to pay for the damage; and is Jenny or her budding bryologist fiance right about her Civic’s starting problem? All this and lots more, this week on Car Talk.

    This week on Car Talk, Melissa’s driver’s door wouldn’t stay shut. So she ran to the nearest body shop, right? Um, no—she tied the door to the seat, and has been climbing in through the passenger seat for the last several weeks. Is it time for a Car Talk Cheapskate Intervention? Elsewhere, Colleen’s Dad told her she couldn’t drive his car because he had to break in its new brakes. Was this really a mechanic’s order, or could it be Dad’s way of telling Colleen he thinks she’s a lousy driver? Also, will a flush remove the debris that might be the only thing keeping Reed’s transmission from falling apart? And, if Katie thinks she has gas that’s too old for her cheap camp stove, why on earth is she considering dumping it into her $20,000 car? All this, and lots more, this week on Car Talk.
