      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 .

Exhaust leak inside car

Recommended Posts

Ok, I started a new job in March in outside sales so I purchased a 2000 Bonneville for a work car. Ever since I started this job I've had alot of fatigue. I've ran the whole gamut of medical tests, diet changes, sleep schedule, vitamins, Redbulls...nothing. I'm now wondering if maybe I'm sucking down some CO while putting on all those miles during the week.

Has anyone ever heard of this? Is there a test I can run myself or can a shop check for this?

Thanks guys!

Start it up and look & listen underneath and under the hood the for leaks.

Look to see that the tail pipe isn't rotted off and that it ends where it should.

Any holes in the trunk where exhaust could be leaking in from.

Since you brought up fatigue and a traveling job I'll mention leaking antifreeze. Have you noticed a sweet smell, even a little or occasionally.

Prolonged exposure to leaking anti freeze has proven to do neurological damage.

So that is what it is grin

I love the smell of Anti-freeze in the morning grin

When in doubt, have it checked out. It is worth it, if you think it is something that is causing you health issues wink

If you want to check it out your self, look for black soot leaking out around connections, exhaust manifolds or muffler. That is a tell tail sign of an exhaust leak.

From experience, it could just be the new sales job also wink

Good luck dude!

Like you say dude wink!

Between the wheel acid, brake cleaner, degreaser and God only knows what else grin, anti-freeze smelled the best.

It is the smell of money smile! Either a freshly pulled in vehicle in-need of repair, or a recently started completed repair (burn off), I love the smell of anti-freeze wink.

Ah.... the smell of new radiator!

Seriously back to the topic is there a 12 volt CO detector available? Maybe a small power inverter and a regular house unit. Once you use it to confirm there is a problem or not it you would be able to use it in the house. If the exhaust is leaking enough to get into the car and cause problems you would think that you would be able to hear and smell something. If you think its a possibility than its definitely worth checking out!

Doesn't CO build up in your system?

Thanks for the input, I had planned on using a CO detector the rest of the week but wasn't sure if it would give an accurate reading in a vehicle. I never thought about antifreeze...

    • Yes, we buy the spray cans of olive oil,canola or whatever. I personally haven't tried fish but with breaded chicken I'm not a big fan. It works great when I make wings and non battered chicken. Just my personal experience.
    • That is a thing of beauty. I am speechless and if you know me........
    • Those are cool but I enjoy the amount of water that mixes with my whiskey when I put 2 or 3 cubes of ice in it.
    • That's why my wife is getting one for Winter Solstice too!
    • Milton’s put 1/8 on your house? Was that the new owner? Mines Miltona, 4 years old and came with either 1/4 or 5/16, not 100% sure but it wasn’t 1/8. 
    • I get what Del is saying to a certain extent. I would never buy a bottle of Pappy for $2000. There's no way that any whiskey can taste 40-50 times better than a $30-$50 bottle. I actually rarely buy anything over $35/bottle but that's just me being cheap. I do like to try the $50 stuff but have rarely found anything that I like better than Eagle Rare, Buffalo Trace or Maker's Mark. Actually one of my favorite Bourbon's is Jim Beam Black for only about $25 a bottle. That being said I couldn't care less what other people drink or what they pay for their whiskey, beer, wine or whatever. If you have a job and make your own money, buy and drink what you want. I don't know if that's true or not but I sometimes wonder the same thing about all the people who claim to like really hoppy beers.
    • Between the frig and stove its only about 2 steps    My kinda program !!!
    • like any addiction..........there are the 12 steps!!!!!!!!!!
    • awe............a Christmas present for the wife................so you can use it!!!! I see!!!!!!!!!LOL!!!!!!
    • Whatever gets you though the night.  If it makes you feel superior to drink expensive whiskey then by all means do so.
