      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 .

Can I mix GM Dexcool with other brands ?

Recommended Posts

My wife's Trailblazer is low on coolant, I was going to add some Prestone or other brands but I want to know if it's compatible with GM Dexcool already in the system.

I wouldn't hesitate to mix different BRANDS of antifreeze as long as they are both extended life. You mainly dont want to mix extended life with conventional antifreeze. Prestone, I Believe, has antifreeze which is marked as being Dex Cool compatible.

Thank you Sir !!

I thought Prestone was compatible but now I have the confirmation.

I have heard the argument go either way but after seeing what dexcool and conventional coolant can do to a motor I would still error on the safe side and stick with whatever you have for coolant.

I think we are up to 6 different colors now. Green, orange, pink, red, blue, and yellow.

Make sure you have the radiators flushed regularly with the Dexcool, my brother-in-law that is a mechanic has had to replace many rediators because they become plugged if not flushed regularly.....But I am sure that would be the same with any of the coolants no matter what make or brand.

Dexcool has never won a review in my book!

I also never have been a fan of mixing coolants. Just too much riding on that liquid to experiment (I.E. inner gasket failure issue and other things).

Instead of paying extra for a dexcool flush you can flush them over to regular (green) coolant. most shops typically charge more for a dexcool flush so the cost savings is an incentive. If your flushing dexcool at regular intervals might as well switch to green.

    • Purple and gold finches are starting to become more common, but the redpolls are still lingering around. How late will they stick around for?
    •   I've shot many early but you're right, get one going later in the day and its much easier to get them to commit.   Got mine at 6pm.  
    • If early mornings aren't her thing just hunt later.   If I had to cut out 2 hours of the day it would be the first two.  I'd hear less gobbling, but I rarely shoot a bird early.
    •   Works for me. Anyone else???  
    • Everlasting gobble stoppers  lol
    • Haha, thanks guys- I appreciate that!  I hope you are both right.  
    • Well to hens came out in the morning behind me eating theb a big tom pushed 4 more hens out the pther two joined them and the went the wrong way i should of set up 20 more yards down and i would of had a great shot! Stupid birds
    • Okay guys, we need a name.  I won't register my bird or tell the story until we do. (sounds like blackmail, don't it ?  )   Somebody throw one out and it shall be done.
    •   True that!  
    • Starting at Daga (this week) you have to have your drivers entered 30 minutes prior to the first practice. It used to be you had to have picked them the night before qualifying, so if practice was on Friday and qualifying was Sat. you could use practice to help make entries. Now it will all be done before the first practice.
