      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 .

The coolant should be green? Stick with the green. Its cheaper and as of this point I don't think a whole lot of people are convinced that the extended life coolants actually offer an extended life. In fact most of the extended life equipped vehicles get converted to regular "green" coolant when they get flushed.

As far as the t-stat. 195 degree is what you need.

Yup, my 94 works just fine at 198K using the "plain old" green stuff and a 195 t-stat (finally had to replace the original a couple years ago when it started sticking)...

I also use distilled water to flush and mix with the antifreeze. Sure, it adds a few bucks (literally), but I figure it's cheap peace of mind.

I'll second or third the hot one and I changed mine over to green last winter. I sleep better at night now.

I also have a 98 5.7 chev......using the red/orange coolant.

A mechanic told me when I got the truck that already stay with the same coolant, if your car/truck came off the lot with green stay with green.
