      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 .

Hard Starting Silverado

Recommended Posts

2003 Chevy Silverado 1500 HD 6.0 Gas 95,000

My truck suddenly wont start easily I really have to grind it to getr to start. It has been trouble free most of it life.

I changed the fuel filter immediatly

I'm running some injector cleaner through it now

Runs good once it starts

No check engine light or messages on information center

I'm stumped

Bad Gas?

Condensation?

Help! Any ideas????

Fuel pressure regulator? Try putting the key to the run position to let the fuel pump prime before starting. You should be able to hear it. Turn it off and try and prime it again. If you hear the pump again, you lost the pressure. Something to try anyway. I'm sure airjer or one of the other experts will have more suggestions.

Its probably more noticable after a 15 to 20 minute hot soak? I would guess that it also starts fine when its had time to fully cool down. If this is the case than jw is on the right track, GM fuel pressure regulators are notorious for leaking. It should be located on the drivers side of the fuel rail about in the middle. There will be a vacumm line on it. Remove the vacuum line and start the vehicle. let it run for about 30 seconds then shut it off. Wait for fuel to come out of the vacuum port of the regulator, if it does replace it.

Typically the lower screen and o ring will stay in the fuel rail when you remove the old regulator. Make sure you compare the old one and new one. If the new one has more pieces than the old pieces are still in the fuel rail. You can carefully remove these with a small screwdriver or pick. Coat the new o-rings with di-electric grease and the new regulator will pop right in with little effort. The metal retainer only fits one way so make a note of how the old one was on the rail before removing.

Thanks airjer I got it put in, and yes you were right as so as I popped the retainer ring it all came out in a blast of gas and the screen and O-ring were still in there and I had to pick them out. So it solved my problem. Thanks to all for the info. Had the truck since it was new and have never heard about the pressure regulator failing on the chevs?

    • To answer your question, at peak eclipse I measured 3500 LUX outside, which is brighter than thick clouds. To fish, what happened today was a typical cloud moved in front of the sun.
    • I did, but didn't find anything. Not sure I am doing a proper keyword search however. I believe it is called a termination cap. 
    • So, what is your training that makes you more of an expert than the Cardiac Rehab center of the Mayo Clinic?   You got the 6 week certificate in sales from the Chiropractic Institute?   Seriously, do you have a degree in a health field?  Have you even had any serious scientific training in any field?  Last I recall, didn't you work selling gadgets to Chiropractors or something?  I know you are a big fan of the subluxations and spinal adjustments to cure cancer and diabetes and prevent autism as touted by straight chiropractors.   
    • Here's some footage from the last couple weeks in central and northern WI. Gotta work at it to find the big ones, but managed to find some nice ones lately!  
    • Yup. Like a shopping cart.  
    • Well, being you are not engaging your hamstrings on that treadmill, and you're TRAINING on it!!, you can pretty much guarantee your feet sliding out from underneath you, slipping on the ice next time you encounter it.  Thank you treadmill, best piece of equipment in the gym, for an orthopedic surgeon.   Let me guess, you like to walk slow on it, so its good for you.....?  
    • Thanks RD!  Good info. That's an interesting technique with the Chatterbait.  I will try it.  If you don't mind -- what kind of trailer do you like with the Chatterbait for that technique?  There will be 3 of us fishing so it will a little tight.  Probably will only bring 3 rods...  I am thinking a Jig rod, T-rig rod (plan to try a Nekko rig with this as well)  and one moving bait rod (Spinnerbait, Chatterbait, Buzzbait, Frog, Cranks, etc.)  The great thing about Ottertail county (like others in Mn), there are a thousand lakes... we will hit 2 or 3 a day.  If we have good conditions (low pressure/moderate wind) we will probably try Musky on Battle Lake.
