      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 .

injection service

Recommended Posts

Wondering if anyone has had fuel injection service done to their vehicle. Seems like all garages even walmart offer this service at a wide range of prices. It sounds like the process is all the same, just the product used is different. Is this worth the money? Or is using sea foam or other like additives do the samething? To me it just seems like another way to waste money on an expensive service that I could do by buying stuff off the shelf and stick it in the tank.

I have been a believer in the pressurized service for injectors done at the shadier valve on the fuel rail. I have also been told the gas tank treatments are good as well.

I will also add, I have never heard of any injector being replaced because of it being clogged wink.

That could just be me though. grin

Check out AMSOIL Performance Improver gasoline additive. It is the strongest cleaner/additive product on the market today. It is so good that AMSOIL guarantees you to get a fuel economy increase! Cleans injectors, carbon, emission sensors, improves performance and increases fuel economy. At $10.50 to treat a 20 gallon tank once every 4000 miles it is a very cheap alternative.

just a word of advise be sure not to use any cleaners near the mass air flow sensor as it could ruin the protective coating. where i work our fuel injection cost around 130 includes tank treatment,intake cleaner, and tank treatment. i have recommended and use sea foam in my vehichles and atv (seems to improve the milage and run better) hope i was helpful

My Sub won't run without the intake system fully connected. How do you fool the sensors so that you spray the upper throttle body and components?

Clean the throttle body with engine off. Or you can unplug the MAF if you want to spray with it running. Otherwise you can use a top end cleaner by removing a vacuum hose (the one that goes to the brake booster or to the PCV are the two common ones). Start the vehicle, remove the hose, pinch off slightly, slowly poor in the cleaner (do this with a fully warmed engine). Use about half in this way then poor in the rest fast enough to stall the engine. Let it sit for 10 to 20 minutes and then restart. Enjoy the smoke screen and hope your neighbors don't call the fire department!

I have worked at a dealership for 23 years and have never flushed my injectors on any of my vehicles. I have cleaned the throttle bodys and IAC though. I also don't try to sell customers a flush because in most cases it is a waste of money.

    • Yes!  There is no question the eclipse will affect fishing! The eclipse will draw peoples attention away from fishing and the casual angler will be all wound up about watching the event. They will not be paying attention to anything else and surely not to fishing. The result will be far fewer anglers on the stream and YOU will have more room to fish and less competition. THAT is how the eclipse will affect fishing.
    • Lots of bears being seen around Princeton not on baits just roaming around.
    • Because Sleeper's always have had good produce...and obviously, I just went there. I went to school with them, know how they do their produce. They been around a long time. Wouldn't have  4-5 people  standing there buying if it was lousy. I had to wait the other day. Word gets around fast on small stands.Your statement applies to just about anything...sometimes a restaurant has a good meal, next time it's mediocre. You'd still go there, right? You're going to have some years the corn is better than others, you can't change the weather. This happens to be a good year for the sweetcorn, both places told me.  What would be different at Seneca? It still comes out of a field there, too. Who knows how fresh it is? I'd go with a pickup truck just pulling in, with the corn still cool and damp, before I'd grab some from a pile at Seneca. That's the only time I go, early am, when it's fresh.  OK, so do four ears at about 6 mns then....ya can handle that, right? All I intended was to give ya a tip where to grab some good corn...
    • I cook more than two at a time.   And how can you recommend someplace you haven't been to in a decade?   Like I said, I have gotten good corn there and I have gotten mediocre corn there.   Might be fresh picked, but sometimes I think maybe the field was past its prime when they fresh picked it.   Ever try the corn from Seneca?   They have a little office across 3rd Ave from the plant where they sell corn sometimes.      
    • Because it was about a decade ago I was on that goofy end of town. I knew it. Now yer gonna  waste time fooling around with that souse-o-matic on that poor corn, when two ears in the 'wave, in a covered glass dish with some water for around 3 minutes comes out perfectly delicious. 
    • Let us know by first ice - just saying.  But he is great to work with so don't get me wrong.
    • 3 smallies in 30 min yesterday. 
    • That is the truck that I always buy from, they park at the detailing place that used to be a car wash.  Why were you talking about Super America? They haven't been there for a decade. But either one would be a pretty long drive at the moment. Might have to try sous vide on some...when I get there.
