      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 .

fuel pump stays on

Recommended Posts

I have a 96 Tahoe and lately the fuel pump has been staying on for anywhere from 2-15 seconds or so, after the truck is turned off. I was told from a auto parts store clerk today that it should not be on at all once the truck is turned off. He says that it should be looked at. Anyone have any ideas as to what may be causing it to do this? Thanks.

I had that problem, i gave the gas tank a swift kick and she never did it again, wouldnt do it if you have a nice vehicle, that or get a new one put in

It should be some sort of relay or safety switch that tells the pump to stop(according to my auto parts store clerk).

It is normal for the pump to run a few seconds after shutting off the vehicle. In fact, its abnormal if it doesn't. If it continues running a long time after shut down it could be an indication of a coming failure though.....possibly the relay, pressure regulator or the pump itself.

In the gm trucks like that its common to stay on for a few seconds. Its just keeping the system primed. Anything longer than what you are saying, I would look at replacing the fuel pump relay.

In my Dodge diesel it will stay on for 40 seconds. In fact the way to refill fuel filter canister after replacing filter is to tap the starter to run the pump, I do this approx 5 or 6 times then start truck.

I think it's very normal, all vehicles I have do same, included my wife's Trailblazer with the 5.3 v8.

Where is the relay, and can the average person do it himself?

I need a wiring diagram to make sure but I'll throw this out there any way. The Oil pressure switch is a redundant ground for the fuel pump relay. If the oil pressure stays high for that period of time would it not be possible for the pump to continue to run until the pressure bleeds off? Or would it be possible that the pressure switch is going bad?

3-5 seconds would be perfectly normal, but if you look at the bright side most people are disgusted to find out that there fuel pump doesn't run and your problem is it runs too much! shocked

The owners manual will give you the exact location but I do believe it is in the under hood fuse block. The cover will tell you which one it is.

    • Here's some footage from the last couple weeks in central and northern WI. Gotta work at it to find the big ones, but managed to find some nice ones lately!  
    • Yup. Like a shopping cart.  
    • Well, being you are not engaging your hamstrings on that treadmill, and you're TRAINING on it!!, you can pretty much guarantee your feet sliding out from underneath you, slipping on the ice next time you encounter it.  Thank you treadmill, best piece of equipment in the gym, for an orthopedic surgeon.   Let me guess, you like to walk slow on it, so its good for you.....?  
    • Thanks RD!  Good info. That's an interesting technique with the Chatterbait.  I will try it.  If you don't mind -- what kind of trailer do you like with the Chatterbait for that technique?  There will be 3 of us fishing so it will a little tight.  Probably will only bring 3 rods...  I am thinking a Jig rod, T-rig rod (plan to try a Nekko rig with this as well)  and one moving bait rod (Spinnerbait, Chatterbait, Buzzbait, Frog, Cranks, etc.)  The great thing about Ottertail county (like others in Mn), there are a thousand lakes... we will hit 2 or 3 a day.  If we have good conditions (low pressure/moderate wind) we will probably try Musky on Battle Lake.
    • Mahi are hard to catch in Minnesota.  Specialized equipment is required. 
    • Any recent reports?
    • Down this way I have been getting most my fish around weed edges and weed clumps. Trigs for good edges and chatterbaits worked on bottom or over the weeds, kinda how I would fish a jig. Water around here is pretty murky right now. Docks have been good on those lakes with dirty water and not so many weeds.
    •   You'd poke yer eye out. 
    • Hi, from the Northwest Angle! Water temps are staying consistently in the low 70’s.

      Stateside, walleye fishing has been good from Lunatic to Garden Islands. The edges of islands and reefs in 22-29’ will provide walleye, perch and occasional large pike. Most productive methods have been minnows on gold spinners and deep diving crank baits in UV tiger, clown and blue/chrome.

      Canadian walleyes can be had jigging minnows with gold, pink, and chartreuse on edges of reefs.  Monkey Rocks is holding many schools of fish currently, as well as, reefs south of Deepwater Bay. Bottom bouncing outside these reefs will produce fish as well. Muskie fishing has slowed a little, however nice fish in upper 40’s can be caught in “windows” of time, usually coinciding with Majors and Minors.

      We hope to see you for some fantastic fall fishing & hunting!
