      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 .

Sounds like a wheel bearing. A classic symptom to show up around 35 miles an hour. In a safe area and at the speed the sound occurs try turning both to the left and the right. If the sound gets louder when turning to the right than typically its the left wheel bearing that is bad (more load on the left side) and vise versa.

If not a wheel berg. could be power steering! Racks leak and let air into system. Or another leak!

Ya, if sound intensifise during cornering (around clover leaf) it could be wheel berg... How many miles on car?

Maybe its just happy....or it cant sing! smile.gif (sorry couldn't resist)

I'd agree with Airjer, sounds like a classic wheel bearing description. Could be any of the four. Rears are just a bit tougher to decipher which is the culprit as the sound is harder to zero in on. The turning back and forth doesnt affect the rears as much either.

Jack up and see if you get any play out of one of the wheels. Grab top and bottom of tire and push and pull top and bottom against eah other!

If possible, use stethascope and place prong on hub area and spin tire. Compare amount of noise heard to other three tires. You get one that sounds like a shaken box of bolts and nuts, nine times out of ten it would be that wheel.

Good luck!

If not wheel berg. or power steering, tranny's have been know to make a humm when T-converter has something up with it.

Airjer will like this one, but stop by local dealer and ask to have mechanic go on a test drive with Ya. Its free and they love to do this grin.gif.
