      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 .

I was towing my boat this weekend and my truck had a really bad shake going 55 mph at 1500 rpms. When I went 55mph at higher rmps it didn't shake though. Maybe I just need a new truck! What do you think the problem could be.

Was the shake like a wash board shudder you felt in floor boards, or was it the whole truck shaking?

Does it do it when you are not pulling trailer?

When was the last time you had the trans flushed?

The shake is happening when not towing my boat too, just not as severe. The truck shakes and the steering wheel really shakes. I had an allinment not too lang ago and my front end is less than a year old. I am probably due for a tranny flush. I guess I am hoping that it is the tires since they need replacing and I will be getting new ones very soon. 17" rims are expensive for tires though.

By what you just said, I would suspect tires then. The shop you have the tires replaced at will inspect the front end most likely also.

I thought at first of a possible trans/torque converter shudder, but now to me it now sounds like tires. Always a good idea to get the trans flushed if it is over due.

Good luck!

With the shake changing with rpm and not speed I would say engine miss or trany. 1500rpm you should be in overdrive which means if it is an engine missit would really shake.

Are you due for a tune up? You may have a coil breaking down.

What engine? What mileage?

If it is a load shake, rather then a speed shake then most likely a missfire. When it is shaking take it out of OD and see if it still shakes, if it does then you most likely have a tire concern. If it goes away then it is either a enging miss or a trans concern, most likely engine miss. The 5.4 engines were comon for bad coil packs, and the 4.6 were comon for plug wires.

Yep, I did forget about the C.O.P. miss fire shake.

Does the check eng. light come on at all?

I still stand behind tires though, after he said the above.

You never know? grin

I would like to hear the results off doing this!

Have the same year truck and had the same problem. I got the scanner from the auto parts store and it was the #5 misfiring-new coil pack and she was good to go.
