This week on Car Talk, a day of maple sugaring came to a bad end for John when he spilled a five-gallon container of syrup in his car. How can he get the sticky stuff out of the seatbelt holders, short of slipping a stack of pancakes in there to sop it up?

Also, a classic Car Talk driveway moment, literally, as Jason pours gas down his truck's carburetor, and tries to start it on the air. Will the 20th time be the charm?

And on Stump the Chumps, we find out whether Tom and Ray correctly diagnosed Paula's whistling Bronco. All this, plus Tommy celebrates the arrival of a brand-new jalopy, this week on Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: May 18, 2013]

Great - but change the naming conventions

Would you consider the audio edition of Car Talk, A Sticky Situation, May 18, 2013 to be better than the print version?

I'm never in front of a radio when these air originally - so this is a great format - but if the names started out YYYYMMDD - then the name of the episode - they would be much easier to "manage"
