Thanks... I guess I was on the right path... I just didn't know if there were any extra things I might have to do. I can't wait for my Holley Power Shot Cleaning Kit to come in, so I can use some MAF friendly oil.

There is no thing as MAF friendly oil no matter what any advertising says.

Oil + MAF = Problems

Ask anybody here..

I've still not had ANY problems with an oiled filter. I had one on my '89 T-Bird, I've got one on my '92 Cat and I have more than 20k on the both of them and niether of the had problems. I really don't understand why people rag on them. It's just

On the oiling topic, DO NOT over oil. The first time I did it, I had to let it (cone) sit and drain with a cloth wrapped around it for a day. You might think that you are not putting enough oil on, but it's easier to put less on first, and add a bit here and there later.

I have had no problems with a dirty MAF sensor from the filter oil. The MAF is bone dry.

Those rims look nice chromed. Where did you get that done? Especially the cap, it's plastic, isn't it?


I haven't had any problem with my MAF because of the K&N filter oil. Anyway, maybe I'll check it out and clean it becuase I'm not getting good mileage (350 km on a full tank).

on the oiling topic.

I saw in summit catalog, that accel is making high flow filters called "kool blue" or something like that. Do you know if these filters use an oil or no?

I'm not raggin on them. Stating facts was all I was doing. I have a K&N in my 95 4.6 and My 94 SC. I just clean the MAF on a regular basis. But the true cause is the oil, plain and simple. Maybe you ought to research the issue before throwing the BS flag. More often than not MAF related problems are due to oil from a over oiled filter.

Welll, I agree, it is probably the K&N Oil as many car manufacturers are now suing K&N, Ford is one of em, saying that their product has caused a lot of MAF's to fail (cars under warranty).

Yeah, your mileage is a little bit off.... try cleaning your maf with some electrical spray and a gentle hand/q-tip. As for my rims, they're stock. They look A LOT better now, because I just polished em. They're stock rims, and the center caps are metal. You can get a pair from the For Sale forum.. some guy is selling them for really cheap.

Ok, I forgot that you are more knowing than I.... Whatever...

Go put some oil on the MAF wires and see how it runs...

What? I paid you a compliment. Can't you accept it gracefully? Jim, you are obviously much better informed on this subject than I. I was being silly but still it was a compliment.
