K&N FILTER CLEANER / RE-OILER
Previous | 1 | Next


Anyone ever used this stuff? Easy to do?

Is it just an opportunity to spend £10 in order to accidentally over-oil it and destroy your MAF? :?

( this is the stuff btw )

Is this for the Mikpreza or the Vauxhall Senator?

Mikpreza has long since departed.

This is for the Vectra, which has an Orssom OTRCAI fitted to allow you to drive through deeper puddles.

Easy to do? Yes you just get an achy finger from the pump bottle. Over oiling shouldn't be an issue, as I said, it's a finger operated spray so it's not blasting the oil in and clogging everything. I've got a set I've used twice that you can have if you want as I'm changing my air intake.

Here's what K&N have to say about it.

Zonda - thanks for the kind offer sir - unfortunately since posting above I've watched a couple of uchoob vids, decided "what could go wrong?" and ordered from the seller I linked to. :roll:

I will let you all know when I need to contact beanydiagnostics.com

Had a K&N on the Toyota for years now, no issues at all. Over-oiling seems to be one of those problems that only exists on the internet, or by retarder people. Anyone with an ounce of grey matter can work out what is a reasonable amount of oil to apply!

I also suspect that any case of contaminated MAFs has been due to the use of oiled foam filters, not the cotton type that K&N use.

Mik this is starting to sound quite complicated I would advise taking the car to your local OVC.

Or rather than spend £10 on cleaning, spend £10 on a new filter and not have to faff with cleaning

Then sell the filter on ebay to someone hoping for brutal 0.026bhp gains

New filter is £35 (assuming you are talking about another k&n.

Existing one is no use to anyone unless they have the Orrssom deep-water-wading kit fitted too.

No, a new paper filter. It will help to mop up water too when you do go wading.

My sister is from Morton Baggot direction and has reported all sorts of flooded road fun and being female has even managed to loose undertrays from the underside of her ML

This gets more confusing. My Volvo is missing its undertray, do I need a K&N or paper filter?

K&N on the bottom

How rude. I may be old but I still have control over my bodily functions.

I think this is for wrong forum to be discussing your bottom's oil consumption

I think John is looking for the S&M cleaning / re-oiling kit. Not sure if Tim still stocks it? :?

Cleaning? I used run mine through the dishwasher and then re oil:lol:

The Evo forum really is a shadow of its former self. I remember when the internet was for the elite and now they seem to let any spastic on.
