      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 Alero with 2.4L

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone I bought a 2000 Olds Alero with the 2.4L Engine with 100k on it. However lately, mainly starting today, it runs great, but when it idles, it jumps between 500-800rpm, and then stalls and dies. I can start it up and it runs just fine, but then it does it again later. Any ideas?

What kind of time frame is there between the run fine and the stalling.

My first thought is fuel. I would put a gauge on it and monitor fuel pressure until the vehicle dies to at least eliminate the possibility of the pump going bad.

When you idle at a stoplight, or stop somewhere and leave your car running. About 4-5 seconds, and then dies after idling that long.

Since it runs good other then idling, I would suspect a bad Idle control motor, or a leaking fuel pressure regulator. Pull the vac hose of the fuel pressure regulator and inspect for fuel in the vac line, if there is, replace the regulator.

If you restart it right away and just let it idle will it stall again in four or five seconds or will it run fine for a longer period of time?

It is running better now, it was a repairable and I do some body work, and went to pressure wash it, and took it to a guy this morning and he said something about some coils getting wet? any ideas what he is talking about on that?

Underneath the plate where it says 2.4 liter is the ignition system. There is a coil tower, 4 boots, and two coils. If it was not running ruff under acceleration than it seems odd that that was the fix but I suppose not impossible.

I have had a few cars with bad ignition that actually ran better when the wire where wet so I don't rule out a whole lot anymore!!
