      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 pressure regulator?

if its a 3.1 than its located on the fuel rail near the throttle body. Romove the vacuum port and see if there is fuel coming out of the nipple. If there is replace it.

3.8 is either in the middle on the front fuel rail or on the rear fuel rail near the throttle body. Same thing for this one.

I could not find one on the 3.8l, but this gives you an idea of what to look for (just an idea):

Do these have an IAC that could be stuck closed, then when stepping on the gas it allows air in to the intake?

Guys today my fishing partner was complaining his Grand Am wouldn't start unless he pressed on the gas pedal.

I just sent him the link!

I have same thing on my 98 Malibu (3.1 l). I bought a new regulator yesterday, and will try to fix it this weekend. Thanks for the info!

The condition is referred to as an extended crank. Which means it just takes a lot longer to start. When this happens stop cranking and cycle the key from off to the run position (do not crank), wait 3-5 seconds turn back to off and repeat a couple of times. The last time you turn it to run, then crank it and it should fire up like normal.
