Can anyone tell me, the air filter you buy like a K&N for air intake, K&N states their filter is washable, why then it that the filter has oil on it? How would one be able to wash the filter if it had oil on it?
The K & N filter is a different material...
the stock filter is foam w/oil. It is washable too...
I use hot water in the scrub sink...massage
very carefully...do not rumple-up & squeeze.
Flat dry between paper towels, then air-dry
until dry. Place the stock filter into a zip-lok
baggie, add a bit of light oil, & gently massage
the baggie to spread the oil around the foam
filter. After removing the filter from the baggie,
place the newly cleaned & oiled filter between
some paper towels, to soak up any excess oil...
then re-install into the air cleaner housing.
