      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 .

My engine fan runs alot on my 98 contour Whats the deal?

Recommended Posts

The other day all I did was drive a couple blocks to micky D's and while I was in the drive thru my electric fan kicked in and I'm trying to figure out why? As soon as it kicked in I looked at temp guage and was just off of cold a little and it had not been run all day before that. Could it be a sensor of some sort??? Because my check engine light has been on for quite some time and last time it came on and everything was working fine all I did was disconnect the battery for a few minutes and then it stayed off for a few weeks.

Are the heater controls set on defrost?

Did the cooling fan shut off a short time after?

Might be a normal concern.

There are a couple different concerns with this vehicle in the cooling system. Yours I believe can be fixed by reflashing the pcm and replacing cooling fan relay if needed. There was a recall about high speed cooling fans coming on when not needed, but this was a old recall and will not be valid any more, but there is a tsb for it now. #98-19-4.

You didnt say engine size! If it is a 2.0 they have had lots of problems with water pump impellers falling apart, you would need to replace the water pump. But I think the reflash and relay will fix your car!

    • We live in town in the Twin Cities metro area.  We've had a female Red Breasted Grosbeak in our feeder for a couple weeks. Don't remember ever having them before. And just one? When does that ever happen with Grosbeaks? 
    • Sorry, but his 60 some RBI for someone who's hitting over .300 is exceptionally low.  Especially for the number of games he's played.
    • @MJ1657 That was good for a chuckle over breakfast.  I heard you might've had a less than flawless day yourself. 
    • Sounds good to me! Maybe blanch quick then into ice water like tomato's to get that skin off first....
    • I've never tried it but maybe a guy could peel the beets, cold smoke for a couple hours in a disposable aluminum pan. Then crank up the heat and cover with foil to cook tender. Maybe they would bleed out  without skins? Any juices could go right into the mix. I have plenty of beets to experiment with, I'm going to have to try it now. Smomed pickled beets mmmm!
    • Weather was perfect up here! cloudy, drizzly, 55 degrees. we shot quite a few ducks, geese. The first hour was solid. Lots of birds around, but then as usual it died down. I was surprised at the amount of hunters out there on this WPA considering it was a 1/2 mile hike to get to it.  Left at 9:00 when my son got cold. Will be looking at getting a game cart to haul all the gear back and forth. Maybe try it again next weekend before I get serious on bow hunting......
    • My son and I got 9. Should have had our limit. Lot of teal zipping around! Lot of mosquitos too!!
