View Full Version : Does a K&N mess with the MAF at all?

I know on some cars the oil will get onto the MAF and mess with the reading... Are the 2.8's known for that at all? Thanks...

K&N oiling problems aren't engine specific, their owner specific. If the person doing maintanence on the filter over oils it, they risk damaging the MAF.

I've had a K&N in my airbox for almost 2 years now. Not one problem. I clean and re-oil it every 6 months.

The key is to only use enough oil to coat the gauze material and then make sure it's nice and dry before you re-install it.

The filter doesnt cause the problem, the oil does. Just be careful about how much oil you use.

I think this is true. Can't use too much oil. I think I messed up my first MAF like this.
