      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

ticking sound on my 01 2500 chevy silverado

Recommended Posts

I have a ticking sound that seems to be coming from the passenger front side. It seems to be doing it only when accelerating. It doesnt seem to do it when I put it in neutral and press the gas. Any ideas.

Thanks

Its hard to say. I kinda think it sound metallic but I'm not sure. If its the exhaust manifold what kind of cash will that cost to fix?

I'm almost positive there is a gasket between the manifold and exhaust pipe if there is that could be the culprit.

Does it make any difference if the engine is hot or cold?

If you read in your owners manual for the truck it states in there to expect a ticking noise from the chevys. I have the same problem. wasn't there when i bought the truck but once the miles started to be put on it started doing it. It is possible for it to be an exhaust leak from where the two meet. that would be a simple fix and the exhaust donout(gasket) is only a couple bucks.

No it doesnt seem to matter if the engine is hot or cold. I will try some of the suggestions when I get a chance and post my results.

I had a ticking that I was sure was a leak in the exhaust manifold, but it turned out the AC belt was bad. I had just replaced it less than 6 months prior, so it was the last thing I checked because I assumed it was good. My clue was that the tensioner was bouncing really bad when it was running. It wasn't until I was underneath that I could see the "tread" missing from the AC belt that was causing the bouncing/noise. Good luck!

Is it a 5.3 or 6.0? If it is a 6.0 its not all that uncommon to have exhaust manifold bolts break off. (where they attach to the head) A visual inspection can tell you quick if thats the problem. Also, don't overlook a loose spark plug if they have been out either. I've never run into a loose factory installed one, but who knows?
