      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.

    • I wouldn't count on open water for the opener just yet. As of Friday, there was  a good 24" of solid ice yet to melt.
    •   Took a page out of sniper’s book! Had I known what would go down after I woulda let this guy walk though... I’ll get a story up later. 21.6 pounds, 9 inch beard, 3/4 inch spurs.
    •   That was quick!
    •   Ha, that's easy. Move to Florida!
    • It would be interesting to know what that bill will be if you don’t mind sharing.   I bought a used Ice Cabin several years ago and had the same issue.  The previous owner didn’t do the grease maintenance according to specs.  Once those things get behind it’s tough to correct.   I went through the whole heat it up/wiggle/pound/swear the things off both sides then did what your welding shop did.  Worked real nice after that.  Took a couple half days to complete though and thankfully I have the tools to do it.  I can’t tell you how long it will last though since I sold it not long after fixing it.     I did stress the importance of keeping up that grease to the new owner!   Glad you got yours taken care of.
    • I just run to my dealer and buy the Suzuki stuff. It's a little more pricey but I don't sweat the extra $5-$10 per year. It cost me $50 for 4L of oil and the filter. I did the lower unit in the fall so I don't remember the gear oil cost.   Mine is a 2009 DF90, so pretty similar. Make sure that when you grease all of the zerks to look in your manual. There is one that you won't see until you tilt your motor all the way up. There is also one below the shift linkage that you can't reach unless you take off the lower skirts on both sides. There's about 10-12 screws holding the skirt on both sides.   Also, be VERY careful when putting the skirt back on. I just did mine again last night and accidentally pinched an air hose near the bottom of the skirts. It cut the hose in half when I put the last screw in place!
    • picking up the house tonight from a welding shop in town, guy said they get new houses that axles seize up on, sounded like they heated it up, broke it free, sand it down, grease it, add groves and it should be set. kind of scared to see how much they're going to charge me...    
    • I am new to the 4 stroke world and need to change the fluids in my 05 Suzuki 115 four stroke. What does everyone use for oil, filter, and lube? I was planning on using Mobil 1 or Amsoil 10-40 for the engine oil and the Lucas 90w gear oil for the lower unit. I don't know what filter to get. I know Fram has a filter that fits the motor. I run synthetic oil in my vehicles along with the filters designed for synthetic. I change my own oil and figure the peace of mind is worth the extra few bucks. Any opinions? 
    • Gobbler down...
    • Even with all the snow gone, they still dont want to come out in the fields. Even this morning i really got on the slate, this one come in at 640. Now im cayching brown trout. Good luck fellas
