      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 .

Maybe you guys can help me out. I have a 99 Taurus here with a code p0411....secondary AIS incorrect flow. This is a charity case...(college friend of my daughter) so no money of course. I disconnected and checked both diverter valves manually and applied vacuum and the seem to work fine. Both vacuum and pressure hoses look good. I also went as far as removing the pump and bench testing the pump motor which also runs fine. The only other components involved that I see are a vacuum switch (tough to get at) and a sensor on the pump mount. Anyone have any common finds on these or any other suggestions before I get too involved in this?

Thanks Jer, I don't mind helping him out, I'm just trying to minimize my time involved. I'm off Monday, so it would be Tuesday before I can find anything out at work.

The most comon with air on these is either a bad pump, or a bad pump relay, does the pump work? I will be able to check it out more in the am.

Is this a 3.0 Flex Fuel car? If so there is a pcm update that may take care of it. If it is just the 3.0 Vin U, then make sure there are no vacuum leaks, if you have a scan tool make sure the o2's arent reading lean before the pump kicks on, the front o2's are reading lean the pcm wont devert the air to the cats, to prevent an over lean condition. If the o2's look good, run the air pump and see if they go to lean after the pump is running.

As I said, I pulled the pump and bench tested it. It ran and sounded good. Do you know what the relay runs price-wise?

I sent you an email of the electrical circuit.

Yes it is, as a matter of fact. I was concerned that may have something to do with it.

Thanks for the info....and the diagram!

Sounds like 4 has you set up. I read through the diagnostic chart and think it might not be bad for you to read through it yourself as there are a couple of steps that are time sensitive.
