      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 .

Last time (only time) I had starting issues with my 99 GMC, they put in a new fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator, cleaned my injecters, and installed a new fuel filter. Thankfully, this work was all covered under my extended warranty. Fuel pump and pressure regulator are fairly typical issues with these trucks.

Could be your problem since it is a fairly common occurrence.

More than likely you are loosing fuel pressure. Whether the fuel pressure regulator is leaking or the fuel pump is bleeding off is the question.

Before starting it cycle the key on for 3 - 5 seconds then off. Repeat 3 times then start. If it starts immediately every time than I would be more confident that it has a fuel issue.

If you have the 4.8 or the 5.3 the regulator should be on the drivers side off the fuel rail. you'll see a vacuum line going to it. Start it and let it run until warm. Take off the vacuum line after your shut it off and see if fuel comes out the nipple. If it does than it needs to be replaced if it doesn't than its time for a fuel gauge to see if fuel pressure is dropping and whether or not the fuel pump is the culprit.

Pretty common issue with these trucks and we've had a couple go bad in our fleet. Regulator is the first place to start looking.

If it's a new body style with the 5.3 and if you do need a F.P.R. the part # is 89060422 and GM's suggested retail price is $96.42.

From what I understand this is not too difficult of a job for the do it yourselfers.
