      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 .

first i do not drive this truck very often only go through a tank of gas a month at the most. last weekend we were heading up north in it and i got a check engine light but, no other symptoms so i just cleared the code once i got up north and figured it was o2 sensors. we made it up north fine and the next day went to start and it started fine but killed twice at low rpms and low speed. i put some injector cleaner in it thinking it might be dirty injectors and drove it home about 120 miles, drove fine just had a little ruff idle when rpms were down. today i changed the o2 sensors thinking this was part of it. when i start it up now it idles fine but if i rev the engine and let settle it wants to kill drops down to about 300 rpms shimies a little then recovers. there is also a noticable hessitation in the fuel pedal not all the time but some times. could this be bad gas? dirty injectors? dirty intake mannifold? what are your thoughts. thanks steve

i did a fuel filter about a year ago. i could give it a shot and see what happens. you put filters is there more than just the one inline because if there is i haven't changed them.

I would bet that the code(s) where lean bank 1 and lean bank 2. Both of these together is the key to the puzzle. If only one of them was present than I would be more inclined to lean towards an 02 going bad. Since there together the likely culprit is the intake plenum gasket is leaking, essentially a vacuum leak. The ruff run at idle is another symptom of this problem. To properly diagnose this one a shop would use a smoker to confirm the presence of the vacuum leak at the gaskets.

These are becoming a common problem and start to show up more as the temps cool down.

The classic symptom for a fuel pressure regulator is an extended crank after a hot soak (drive for at least 20 minutes, shut it off, let sit for 10-15 minutes, then try to start).

i would also say vacuum leak. i change my fuel filter every 5,000 on mine i get my filters cheap so its no big deal but you would be surprized how mutch restriction is in that filter after 5000 miles. i feel it helps the fuel pump alot

well my machanic took a look at it and ended up being a dirty maf sensor so he cleaned it and that took care of the ruff idle. the check engine light he said is from a vaccume leak from somesort of valve back by the fuel tank he says another bad design. when i pick the truck up i will ask what the name of the valve was.

    • Thanks...  Only truck in our neighborhood anyway....
    • Better than breaking your arse slipping on the ice.  
    • Yes!  There is no question the eclipse will affect fishing! The eclipse will draw peoples attention away from fishing and the casual angler will be all wound up about watching the event. They will not be paying attention to anything else and surely not to fishing. The result will be far fewer anglers on the stream and YOU will have more room to fish and less competition. THAT is how the eclipse will affect fishing.

    • Because Sleeper's always have had good produce...and obviously, I just went there. I went to school with them, know how they do their produce. They been around a long time. Wouldn't have  4-5 people  standing there buying if it was lousy. I had to wait the other day. Word gets around fast on small stands.Your statement applies to just about anything...sometimes a restaurant has a good meal, next time it's mediocre. You'd still go there, right? You're going to have some years the corn is better than others, you can't change the weather. This happens to be a good year for the sweetcorn, both places told me.  What would be different at Seneca? It still comes out of a field there, too. Who knows how fresh it is? I'd go with a pickup truck just pulling in, with the corn still cool and damp, before I'd grab some from a pile at Seneca. That's the only time I go, early am, when it's fresh.  OK, so do four ears at about 6 mns then....ya can handle that, right? All I intended was to give ya a tip where to grab some good corn...
    • I cook more than two at a time.   And how can you recommend someplace you haven't been to in a decade?   Like I said, I have gotten good corn there and I have gotten mediocre corn there.   Might be fresh picked, but sometimes I think maybe the field was past its prime when they fresh picked it.   Ever try the corn from Seneca?   They have a little office across 3rd Ave from the plant where they sell corn sometimes.      
    • Because it was about a decade ago I was on that goofy end of town. I knew it. Now yer gonna  waste time fooling around with that souse-o-matic on that poor corn, when two ears in the 'wave, in a covered glass dish with some water for around 3 minutes comes out perfectly delicious. 
    • Let us know by first ice - just saying.  But he is great to work with so don't get me wrong.
