      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 .

Grand prix shift

Recommended Posts

97 GP 188000.

when I have the cruse on and decide to tromp it to get through some traffic my car seems to dump. (I'm not sure if its the trans trying to shift and "missing the shift" or if the motor is doing something funny. seems to chug somewhat) Sometimes it takes a while for it to go and kick down other times it does it ok. This happens at high and low speeds. But it dosn't do it when i don't use the cruse.

I know its not much to go on but it doesn't hurt to ask.

Have you changed the fuel filter lately? When you kick it down can you tell if the tranny shifts down? What engine is in it?

On this model I believe the ecm monitors cruise servo position, and if the cruise servo is sending the wrong position to the ecm it can limit cylinders to prevent over reving. I also see a tsb for a valve body problem with the tcc vavle sticking, and this could very well be the problem here.

I've had this happen when the plug wires were bad. Engine kinda goes flat when you get into it.
