      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 .

I have a 200 explorer that has begun to show some signs of tranny problems. It has 83k miles. When it shifts from 1st to 2nd it doesn;t shift smooth, the engine revs about 200-400 rpms as it shifts, the rest of the shifts are normal. Then after about 10-15 miles the Over Drive light on the dash begins to blink. I don;t have an owners manula and my haynes manual says toi change filter and fluid, and if that doesn't solve it to take it to a tranny shop.

Can anyone give me some ideas as to what I can do to fix it myself. I have tools and I am not afraid to use them.

BTW, this is the same explorer that blew a head gasket two months ago that I rebuilt myself and runs better than ever now. (Except for the tranny)

Yep. Tranny flush, filter, and refill.

Is it bright red still? Smell burnt at all?

Does it shift hard from 1st to 2nd under heavy acceleration or still wind slightly?

still might be worth a shot pulling the pan and

checking the filter, if it looks good... then

you in for some expensive repairs...

Don't bother with a fluid change, your going to loose it all when the trans comes apart again. It sounds like you may have had a valve body problem, it may have progressed into some hard part failures. This needs to go to a reputable transmission shop for proper diagnosis.

At that many miles the pan should have been dropped and filter changed. The filters tend to plug up. But if the light is flashing there should be a code stored in memory that can be retrieved and give you a better idea of what might be wrong. There also is a transmission range sensor that seams to cause some weird problems also.

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.
