      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 .

95 Ford contour 4 cyl 2.0 gl water pump

Recommended Posts

Took my 95 contour in today with an antifreeze leak.Was told its the water pump leaking.$750 estimate to repair it.Does this seem like a reasonable amout for this repair?That includes replacing the timing belt.Also is the pump located on the passenger side by the serpentine belt?I may just tackle this job myself.They figured it would take 5 hours to do the job (yuck).Its going to cut into my fishing time.Thanks for any help.

If you even think about doing it yourself make sure you have the tools to align the cams/crank. If I remember correctly the water pump is driven by the serp belt but the timing belt needs to be removed to replace the pump. Yes its not a bad idea to replace the belt and its also not a bad idea to replace the idler pulleys. We see a fair amount of these that start to throught the belts soon after replacement it is usually the idlers that have worn out.

If its the regular 2.0 you will need to get the tensioner spring from ford if its the first time the belt has been changed. If its the ztech 2.0 (i don't think it is) definitely replace the idler pulleys (t-belt kits with all the parts needed are available from NAPA).
