      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 .

2000 silverado service engine light

Recommended Posts

The truck is a 2000 silverado 2500, 6.0l, 130,000 miles. I am getting a service engine light when I am at cruising speed over 55 MPH, It doesn't come on until I am over 55 mph and it goes off as soon as it gets below 50 mph. Takes about 2 minutes of driving over 55 when I first start out, but after that as soon as I reach something over 55 it comes on. If I accelerate fairly hard it goes off til I level off again. No symptoms that I can detect, runs smooth at all speeds, plenty of power and idles fine.

Anyone got any idea of what I am looking at?

The truck is just telling you not to drive over the speed limit grin

I would say it could be anything from a TQ issue to an emissions issue.

I have not seen this/or recall it in the past with other makes. Could be anything.

I would have a code scan done to see what is found.

I kinda figured I was going to have to have it scanned, just thought by chance I could avoid it.

Sorry I am not a Chevy guy, so I was hoping someone else would have your answer, because that was the best one I had whistle . I would pull codes on it and go from there, atleast we would have a direction to go in.

There are literally thousands of possibilities that can turn the check engine light on. The first step is to identify the code and then the fun begins! What happens if you set the cruise at 45 for the same amount of time it takes for the light to come on at 55?

Sorry upnorth, I'm in one of those sarcastic moods today for some reason?

No worries....I have not lost my sense of humor smirk

It stays off as long as I am under 55 MPH. Doesn't matter how far or long I drive it.

I may not be able to have it checked for a bit, but when I get something I will post what I get.

And if I am doing over 55 mph and slow down to under 50 mph it goes off.

I would say if you have no running concerns, you should be fine to wait awhile before having the codes read and a repair made.

Just had it checked and the error is P0300 on cylinder 6, according to what I was told it is a random miss. Before someone suggests plugs and wires, I already tried that last week.

I had it scanned at Auto Value and the guy who scanned it said since I already changed wires it could be a sticky injector. Does that sound valid?

I am running some seafoam through it now, yes I realize that is a long shot but it sounds easier than cleaning or changing an injector.

Well you should have did a cap and rotor along with the plugs and wires.

My truck did this and it was the Cap!

I don't think it has a cap on and rotor on that motor. I can't find any reference to a distributor cap and I pretty sure the coil pack don't use a cap and rotor. But good idea though.

The 6.0 motor does not use a distributor cap. It has individual coils mounted above the valve covers and a short plug wire to each cylinder. Same set up as the 5.3!

Upnorth, Why not swap the #6 coil with an odd number coil (1,3,5,7) to see if the misfire follows the coil?

I will give that a try.

Still there. I am trying to eliminate the easy stuff and I am trying to change the fuel filter and of course the dang lines are stuck good. I have been spraying penetrating oil, tapping the nut and trying to loosen it for a couple hours and getting absolutely nowhere except close to stripping the nut mad

Anyone have a surefire tip to get those things loose?

I remember the days when fuel filter was under the hood away from all that fricken corrosion, what were they thinking to moving back by the tank confused

    • I just read as of today, no lakes in Mn are ice free
    • I hit the woods yesterday morning and snuck into a little clearing and ended up being anout 50 yards from where they were roosting. They were very vocal and a few hens sounding off too. Soon as i started to call after they flew down the hens really got into it and accually pulled the toms to the west of me. I did get 1 to come in but only had like a 5-6 inch beard and 2 differnt groups of jakes so knowing there is around 20 toms in the flock of 80 or so i passed on him . Pretty hard to compete with that many hens. The snow is finaly starting to go so i think it will only get better. Heading out in the morning for a short hunt due to work.
    • Still on a roll heading into 2018 
    • Might have to as my garage up north is darn near full to. Sleds will be going into storage soon so that will free up a little space. Storage space is actually pretty cheap compared to building your own
    • Dang Walleye, dude you need to build a Toy barn out back to start holding all these toys! 
    • Thanks guys!  Excited to be back, and thankful for the late allowance!  I hit may 2 - 5th.  Bringing my boy on his first time out this weekend with a gun.  Looking froward to it all!  Good luck guys!!!
    • Will take a little bit to get used to but will spend less time mowing this year and more time doing fun things. If anyone is looking for and older cheaper riding mower I will have a couple of them for sale as soon as I get them out of storage next week. Ones a Craftsman and ones a Scotts. Both well maintained and good shape and will be in the 250 to 300 range.
    • Old Man Winter is refusing to loosen his grip on Wisconsin, dropping from a few inches to more than 2 feet of snow in across the state in a series of snowstorms in the last week. Crews from Pattison State Park and the Brule River State Forest continued to groom ski trails and reported good to excellent conditions. Other properties have put away grooming equipment but skiing was still fair on ungroomed trails through central and even southern Wisconsin. After another 15 inches of snow this week, ski trails were groomed April 17 at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase Thompson, DNRThe weather kept many fishermen inside this week, but warm weather this week should bring out lots of anglers. Walleye fishing was picking up on the Oconto, Peshtigo, Menominee and Wolf rivers prior to the snow, but then water temperatures dropped dramatically. There have still been hundreds of shore anglers and boaters out on the Fox River to catch a trophy walleye. Sturgeon are in the Wolf River, but with cold water it will be at least a week or longer before spawning will occur. This satellite image taken by NOAA about noon April 19 shows snow cover across almost all of WisconsinPhoto credit: NOAAMost Door County ramps and access points are blocked with snow. Before the storm fishing was fairly productive. Boats launching at Sturgeon Bay were trolling for browns. Steelhead fishing was good before the storm with numbers of fish showing up in creeks. .
