ingram4868 Posted April 15, 2008 Report Share Posted April 15, 2008 A couple of weeks ago I cleaned the FRPP air filter with simple green and rinsed in warm water until it was clear. I also let it air dry for a day and then oiled it with the K&N red colored aerosol spray. It ended up looking like a normal K&N filter and the car ran just fine. So after a week I looked under the hood and most of the oil is no longer visible on the outside surface of the filter. Now perhaps I didn't oil the filter enough and the oil just soaked deeper into the gauze or the oil got pulled into the intake. Today I ordered one of the AMSOIL non oiled filters that use some nano fiber material that is also reusable. If oil does get on the MAF sensor are there common symptoms that the car would exhibit? I just figured that while I have to wait a week for the new filter to get here I could use the time to clean the MAF sensor. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
