      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 .

Diesel Problem..airjer?

Recommended Posts

gunflint

I just put $2300 into my transmission so naturally I'm having problems with my diesel engine. It's a 92 6.5 Turbo Diesel. When starting everything is fine for the first few seconds, it starts up, idles good, then revs up (on its own) and kills. It's almost like it's flooding. To start it I put pedal to the metal and it does the same thing one or two more times, then stays running. It runs fine except going up steep hill when it's cold. Then it seems to "take off" on it's own. Any ideas? Thanks

Sounds like you might have some air or leak in a fuel line some where. Do you know if they had to disconnect any fuel lines when they did your transmission?

By your description, it sounds like the air is getting purged after your second or third start.

Gunflint, do you have the PMD module moved from motor to fender of truck ?

6.5s had many problems with the electronic control of the injection pump, to fix it you had to install the module away from top of motor where it was getting hot.

I had 2 of them and both had same issue which was solved by moving PMD module to left front fender, adding a cooling fin, and of course a harness extension.

When truck acts funny try to get a bottle of water and pour it on left side of fuel pump, if it runs fine for a minute or so, PMD might be your problem.

I once traveled 200 miles using a case of Coke I had in truck to cool off my pump....it was a mess all over the motor but I got home.

These are all good possibilities. Yes, they disconnected fuel lines when working on the tranny. Upon closer inspection I discovered a possible fuel leak along the underside of the bed. Also when this problem started it only happened when the engine was warm but now it happens on a cold start. The fuel filter has less than 400 miles on it. So far this sounds like an affordable problem. The biggest issue will be giving up a day of fishing tomorrow to try and track this down.

Don't forget to check your fuel return lines. If there's an air leak you can have problems like this as well.
