OK,<br>So i know not to over oil, but what is the right amount(i cant see getting exactly 1 oz on there esp from a spray can)?<br>I know some of you would rather buy a new one.<br>When do you normally clean(mileage)?<br>I just bought the oil and cleaner from IPD, b/c GA gets viscious pollen and i hit 8k mileage(recommended at 10k right?)<p>So I am goin to go with clean gentley and let dry(about how long does this normally take), then I am really only going to briefly spray the filter(underoiling has got to be better than over)?<p>Help me out here, i know it is a lot of questions. Thanks<p>It is the drop in type not the typhoon

Re: K&N cleaning, how and when? (PornSStar)

Some people say clean it every 30,000 to 50,000 miles. It is so easy though that I do it every 10,000. See the cleaning guide below.<p><br><A HREF="http://www.knfilters.com/clningins.htm" TARGET="_blank">http://www.knfilters.com/clningins.htm</A><br>

Re: K&N cleaning, how and when? (jclaib)

the biggest issue, is to let the filter fully dry BEFORE you add the ol, if there is water in the filter, the oil will sit ontop of the water and when you start the car the oil get sucked into the engine and kills the MAF. I let mine dry for a few days and leave the stock filter in. You may want to shake the water out and then blow dry or run air through the filter. Don't use high pressure air close to the filter.

And don't look Through the filter towards a light after You clean & dry it before You re-oil it or You'll NEVER use a K&N filter ever again.... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">

I also find the amsoil filter oil seems to do a good job of coating the filter, takes longer to soak thru. very sticky like maple syrup.
