You have ever had a problem with a K&N air filter and your Mass Air Flow Sensor.
what problem did you have when the K&N oiled your MAF?Originally posted by jtkz13@Feb 24 2004, 12:51 AM
My MAF seemed to not like the K&N filter. I definitely didnt over-oil it, and after about 3-4 months I would have to clean the maf sensor & reset the computer. I put a stock filter on for warranty work and dont plan on going back to the K&N. A stock replacement panel filter isnt going to make any more hp or even sound louder, imo.
what do you use to clean the MAF? I think I might not be useing the right stuff. I have a big cone K&N in my cobra that I paid a lot of money for that I don't want to throw out, but this is getting hard.Originally posted by jtkz13@Feb 24 2004, 02:59 AM
I would get CEL's & just general rough idle & unsmooth acceleration. The CEL I got before I ditched it was "bank 2 lean" or something like that. I thought it may have been my O2 sensors, but I cleaned the maf & reset the computer and it has been running great since.
Now, I'm not dissing K&N filters to be honest. I run a big ole 9" cone style in my Mustang with good results. I still make a habit out of cleaning the maf & resetting the computer every time I clean the filter though.

If you have ever read your owner's manual it says that using oil type filters may void your warrenty. I have one in my truck and I'm getting a "bank 1" and "bank 2" lean code. I cleaned the O2 sensors because they aren't that old but it didn't work. I guess I'll trying cleaning the MAF before I replace the O2 sensors.
