      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 .

Hello,

I have an 02 tarus that has a squeel to it. I found that it comes from an aluminum looking piece attatched to the air filter tube; it attatches to the intake. It has the accelerator cable attatched to it. Any idea what the name of this part is? I have asked around and nobody knows. Being a do it yourselfer, I would rather not take it to a shop.

Thanks!

Does it sound like a sqeaking belt except you can hear it on the drivers side of the engine (chirp, chirp, chirp, chirp)?

If so I would bet that you are hearing the CMP shaft which is located right underneath the area you are talking about (3.0 Over Head Valve "OHV" v-6 engine).

The piece that the throttle cable is attached to is called the throttle body.

Cam shaft position sensor syncronizer shaft. It sits in the distributer hole and spins with the engine, and the cmp sensor tells the computer what position the camshaft is in.

Hi there,

Someone said that it was the cmp shaft that actually needed to be replaced. Any idea of an average labor for something like this? I see the part is about $35 on the napa HSOforum.

Thanks

The shaft is only available from the dealer as far as I am aware. It will be more than $35 which is probably the cost of the sensor. There is a fair amount of labor involved. The plenum has to come off and the wiring harness needs to be moved aside just to gain access to it.

Exactly! Its just like a distributor and needs to be timed. In a pinch, once access is gained and the sensor is removed, the crank can be turned until the center part of the shaft lines up with the notch on the outer shaft. Install the new one in the exact same position and it will be pretty close. You'll know if your to far off if the check engine light comes on immediately. At that point you'll need to take everything back apart and align it with the tool.
