      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 .

GMC cabin air filter

Recommended Posts

I own a 1995 GMC Sierra. Before I purchased the truck it was owned by a farmer and subsequently the interior was extremely dirty all the time. It was detailed before I bought it and is surprisingly clean. However, when ever I have the heat on high I get a distinct smell of dirt and dust. Is there a cabin air filter i can replace? Or is it just all the dirt in the air ducts that is causing this? Thanks for any help.

I would not think a 1995 would have a cabin air filter, but I could be wrong. Someone else might chime in with some better info.

Now, the evap coil and heater plenum can get dirty and stink. Short of removing and cleaning, I have had good luck turning heater/a/c blower fan on high and spraying Lysol disinfectant spray right in the cowl grid (air intake), in front of the windshield. You can switch the selector modes and get all the air ducks.

Good luck.

I am pretty sure there is no filter in this system. About all you can do is remove the blower motor, and resistor and wash out what you can, then take the air hose and blow out the rest. It may help some, but you wont get it all.

Thanks for the help fellas. Ill see what I can do. Hopefully I won't even need to use the heater in truck for a while. Again... thanks for the info.

Nope no filter. The new trucks don't even have them. They have the slots, but no filter. I think only 99-04 Gm trucks have filters.

I am surprised that the newer vehicles don't have them. When I do PM's at work, the Sterlings have them and they are filthy to say the least. In fact, the air cleaners for the engine usually have a long way to go, but those cab air filters, well, I am surprised air can get through them.

We have a 99 Suburban and an 04 Silverado, neither one has a cabin filter.

99 Suburban was the classic style, I believe. Probably why it didn't have them. My 2000 Z71 had them and my 2002 2500HD has them. Maybe 2003 was the cut-off.

I remember that they are pretty expensive to change. I thought I paid over $50 for cabin filters.

I know this is true threw Ford, but if you contact the Dealer's parts department, they might have a kit you can buy and install for a cabin air filter in a veh. that did not have one from factory.

Good luck!

There is a product called ozium I have used it with good success but you must use it sparingly, it can get very overwhelming.

Find the air intake for your HVAC system and put a short spray into it while on full. Not a miracle cure, or snake oil, but I have encountered positive results.

Good Luck.

    • 2nd that,  30 years here...
    • oh wow!!!!!  poster too!!
    • Yer gonna be blowin' chunks one of these days, Delbert. Why not just an easy overnight marinade, then in the crackpot on low, and lift that lid a few times to keep the heat low? I always pull mine at 4-5 hours on LOW, not the 6-8 they say. I have about 155* internal and still pinkish at that, and I have 3 different crackpots I use. Never had it fail in oh, ten or fifteen years.....maybe because I always do a top round or rump, instead of an arm or chuck. You DO  occasionally get a tougher one, that has a lot of sinew in it, that's why I eyeball mine so carefully. (working 2 yrs at the butcher shop helped, too) I always let it sit in a covered glass dish for 10-15 mns before I start slicing away....
    • I worked with stainless for 28 years, it's the way to go.
    • Yeah, I forgot to include the LEM, which is basically the Rikon with a different badge. I know that style will cut better and definitely be a better unit. Just not sure if I am going to justify the price at 2x higher for a very occasional piece of equipment.    A wood bandsaw could be used. The saw doesn't know whether it's cutting meat or wood. The difference is that a stainless table and blades would be preferred IMO. Cleanup probably isn't much different between all of them.
    • Paint is roughy just used what I had but pretty dang happy with it for 30 bucks.  First charcoal test lasted 6-7 hours.A5B3A72F-6F87-445B-949E-92B20BF41ECF.MOV  
    • I still think sous vide is the ticket if you want the lean roast to be tender, juicy, and pink .  (must resist temptation to insert inappropriate remark here) Next I think I will try the accelerated simulated dry aging where the meat is brushed with fish sauce before sealing in the bag and going in the refrigerator, and then held at 103 for an hour or so (not too long) in the bath before cooking at 130.  
    • I purchased the FLX-28 last season after using the 18 for several years and wow, what a night and day difference!  I really enjoy the auto depth range feature and digital depth readout.  No more taking time to guess the depth!  Weed mode rocks in shallow water weeds when I'm looking for 'gills.  The two zoom zones are great especially for suspended crappies when the 6 foot bottom zoom isn't enough.  Now the bottom 12 feet is there.  Great battery life and it's much quieter than the 18.  Color customization is nice (I have it on palette 3) and I don't have any interference from any other flasher thanks to 20 rejection modes.  I've seen the Marcum 6 and 7s in action and they are also very nice units and allow for lots of customization.  Biggest issue is time to learn the features and the price point.  Still hard to beat the quality of Vexilar or the service the company provides!
    • My dad, may he rest in peace, used an old wood cutting bandsaw that he converted by making some sort of kludgey plywood things to keep the blade on the wheels.   Worked fine.  Not sure how easy it was to clean.   Also not sure how much he worried about it.   Ease of disassembly for cleaning, and blade retention in the presence of food grease would seem to be the big issues.  He cut up a lot of deer and a few moose and nobody got sick...  for what that's worth.
