      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 .

'04 Silverado Power Steering

Recommended Posts

work sucks

I have a 2004 Chev Z71 (45,000 miles) that when I turn right at low speeds it sometimes seems like the power steering pump locks up for a second. It doesn't always do it, but it is kind of a pain in the rear when coming around a corner with a car waiting at a stop light not knowing if it will turn. mad.gif There is ample fluid in the pump. There also was a steering recall on the linkage??, but don't think that has anything to do with it. Help please?

there is something called variable steering assist in 04 chevy's that has been an issue. Basically, the pressure is regulated at different speeds to make steering feel "right" in different conditions. I will see if I can remember to do some research for you tomorrow at work and report back

Sounds like another one of those "Should be recalled, but won't" items huh? Matt - sometimes it does have a small whine - the same as the sound as if the fluid was low, but not all the time.

I did a little research on the subject on All-Data and found that many models from 02 to 06 have this problem and is considered "normal operating condition" by GM. There is an upgrade available for the gearbox, if you are really perturbed by the problem that "could" rectify the situation. I kind of wonder sometimes about how engineers can take a simple thing that has worked well for decades, such as power steering, and find a way to make it fail by overworking the design. Granted, that is how progress is forwarded. It won't be long and all vehicles will be drive by wire, which means that all controls will be electronically controlled. I think I might be rambling and getting off topic.....

by the way, it could be a recall issue but isn't as of now. There is a loose admission of a problem, but I'm sure that a few families need to be killed as a result of the condition before this happens.

      With 2 trout stamps you can keep double your limit. You heard it here first on the interwebs!  Me and Mr Williams will swing by and say Hi this winter in Ely.   That is, if we can get around your sled!!  Happy Thanksgiving!

      don't  give them any ideas!

       There is probably not going to be much ice to speak of  if the forecast holds true. They are talking 50s on Friday, Sunday and Monday. Any ice we did have will most likely be gone, unfortunately.
    • snowfighter
      Haven't been out looking but things have been froze up for awhile. Heard there was some out on Bowstring last week.

      Wife you dummy  I know the problem first hand !!

      It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon.   Any questions hollar.

      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?

      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.
