      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 .

Water Dripping?

Recommended Posts

I bought a 98 K1500 Chevy with the 5.7L and I notice when I have driven long enough to warm up the motor there is what appears to be water dripping from somewhere on the left side of the engine area (if you are standing at the front looking under the hood). It kind of hits what looks like a ground wire mounted to the frame. It happens without me running the AC. Is this normal or should I take it in? My first truck....

Does it look clear, pink, or green. I have seen coolant nipples leak on these and the coolant will travel all the way to the back of the motor and drip near the starter. if its any color other than clear than I would probably have it looked at. A water pump or an intake gasket is not out of the question as well.

If it is clear than likely it is the water draining out of the evap housing. This does happen when the defrost is on as well as the a/c or anytime the a/c button is on. This is normal.

Did you have the air conditioning on. Could be the condensation dripping form there. If its clear then thats what it is and thats, normal.

The liquid does look clear but I do not use the AC. I do have the fan on regularly. I will experiment with driving without any fan on and see if it still does it. If it is the water pump or intake gasket is there any other signs I can look for such as declining levels of coolant or something like that? I am sure the leaking liquid is not green or pink and none of my guages are running out of normal range. I appreciate the help guys.

When you have the fan running is it running on defrost?

I believe that when you turn the defrost on your A/C also turns on to dry the air - so it could be the evap drain.
