      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 .

98 Suburban has intermittent stutter

Recommended Posts

Every few days I get a low-RPM stutter-like miss. I doesn't seem to show as I speed up. New plugs and wires this summer. I've added a couple bottles of iso and some injector cleaner and twisted all the wires. Any guesses before it goes to the garage?

So it runs ruff at idle?

I can tell you that there is no need to use ISO in your fuel tank unless you drive through an auto car wash with the fuel door open and the gas cap off. There is plenty of ethanol in the gas that will absorb any condensation that may occur in the tank. Also every time you add a bottle of ISO you are essentially raising the octane rating of the fuel, which can potentially lead to decreased fuel economy and performance.

Anybody else have an opinion on using heat(isopropyl)?

Yes, like you said, dont do it, unless you know you have water in the system.

It ran rough on and off all week and I got the Check Engine light on Friday and stopped at a parts store to get a scan. It was something related to ignition but too general to pinpoint anything. The engine smoothed (and the Check Engine light went out) before I left the parts store parking lot and there's been no stumble since.

I would guess random cylinder misfire also!

The ignition control module was a problem sometimes on those trucks. They can give you low speed issues and work fine higher up in the rpm range.

The cap and rotor on that one is also a weak point, but it would not likely be an intermittent problem.

Not sure if this helps at all, I had trouble with my chevy van stumbling and dying intermittently. I noticed that the temp gauge dropped out each time it happened. So then I knew there was a short somewhere. Found it in the harness where it was resting on the upper control arm.

I pulled the distributor cap this morning and all the contacts had a green Rip Van Winkle beard. I've never seen a cap with that much stuff. That cap was new within the past six months and I'd like to thank the local NAPA store for replacing it for nothing.

I'm guessing there's some kind of moisture problem. I used to have a problem with the 88 Silverado where I'd get some leakage from the manifold water neck and it would wick back to the cap and cause problems but I fixed that with a new hose and clamp.

    • Nice win this afternoon on the road...things are getting interesting....need others to keep stumbling and we may not have to worry about a Wild Card.
    • That's the problem in restrictor plate races--stay on the gas and hit the car in front or lift and be hit from behind.
    • No doubt!   We didn’t have to wonder if there was actual contact though after Dillon said he had a run and just stayed in the gas.   Is what it is.  And that’s the difference I noticed.
    • So no sill plate for the walls on the perimeter then.  OK.     Again, not an expert so whatever your guys say and you’re comfortable with... I don’t know all your construction details. I - sandy County Is just that; sandy.  So it’s not too tough to get a good base.   My experience, as it relates to this, has just been based on building a 36x48 wood framed garage in Isanti County.  8 inch block on the perimeter to support 12 foot sidewalls of 2x6 construction.  My buddy that sold me the lumber said the project was only 200 feet short on interior walls from being a house.  After adding in the attic square footage it had more than my house.  Going with a pole building frame is the game changer.   Again, best of luck. It would be interesting to me to see the completed project.
    •   Didn't say you would.    
    • Lol Leech-I don’t remember saying I was going to block the driveway with logs or wire. They will begin hitting the 4x4’s beneath there that have been there to keep cars from driving on the grass. Not my deal. I was only looking for some guidance on if I’m overreacting or if there should be som me]angers employee. So, ya, like everything else, it’s a lack of manners and I’m not crazy...yet. 
    • Just had a call with the builder and the concrete guy I am working with. Neither said they would "waste" concrete on thickening the edge unless there were plans to add on to the structure at a later date. The builder said no amount of concrete on the edge will help the building stability. He says if it moves its his fault in building it. There will be no weight on the outside edge of the building, worst thing that could happen would be erosion outside the building.
    • Had looked into the panels and they pretty much doubled the initial cost of the structure. I could spry foam the entire wall cavity for less $ and have close to the same thing.
    • Most of the moving on restrictor plates is done by changing the air flow around the car being passed with no or very little contact.
