      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 .

Serviceing transfer case

Recommended Posts

What is involved in servicing the transfer case on my 06 F150? What else could possibly be done other than draining and refilling? Is it nessecary at 17000 miles? A dealer is after me to get it done soon.

I don't know specifically on the Ford's, but on my Silverado I've just drained and refilled. I wouldn't think that it would be necessary at 17K. I did mine at 20K and the fluid still looked like it was brand new.

The procedure is to just drain and refill. At 17k? This is a 50k service, they are really reaching for your money!

Its not mentioned at the 18k, 20k, or 30k but it is mentioned at the 60k maintenance schedule. There should be a service schedule in the owners manual, I would check that also, if that says the same thing I would bring this to the service managers attention? There are enough things to fix on fords without having to make stuff up. wink (yup, I went there! grin)

I do mine about every 30,000 miles or so. It is easy and very cheap to do while the oil is draining from the eng...

I know most never do it and do not have issues.

I would check the owners manual like Air said and I would confront the service writer or managerw ith any miss information.

Good luck!

No offense taken Air, I'll probably go back to GM's the next time around.

If you still have it under warranty make sure you do the suggested services at the appropriate mileage intervals listed in the owners manual. You don't want to get stuck with paying for something that would normally be covered under warranty just because you missed a service...like changing transfer fluid.
