      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 .

just had starter replaced, mechanic now things it sounds weird

Recommended Posts

I had my starter replaced in my '01 chevy silverado about a month ago. Had the oil changed today and the guy wants me to bring it back in tomorrow to check out the starter. It's working fine, but he thinks it sounds weird "like there's too much air going through it".

If they do replace the starter they installed a month ago, should I expect to pay the whole bill again for a new starter? Should the part have any warranty? Thanks.

Most shops have a 12 month/12k mile warranty. Most parts stores offer at least the same. If its less than a month and the starter is the cause than there should be no additional charges. As shack mention it doesn't hurt to ask!

Airjer brought up a great point.

The standard for years for a warranty has been the 12/12. I have heard of a 6 month/6000 and I have heard of a 90day situation.

All dealers have the minimum 12 month, 12,000 miles warranty (some major repairs come with longer) and most After-market shops have this as well.

I also have heard (in the case of a starter) the labor to replace will be limited, but the part will be warranted longer or for "Life".

Might be a great idea to ask them what the warranty you have on your new starter.

Also run of thumb, having it replaced under the warranty does not start the warranty over again, but it might just be a good idea to ask about this also.

Good luck!
