Default over oiled k&n on my99rs!!!!!!!!

i recently put a k&n on my intake again and it must have been over oiled because my car isnt happy. i pulled the maf out and it was covered. so i bought carb cleaner with tolene(wrong spelling) and cleaned it then drove home pulled it out and cleaned it again. this sucks tommorrow ill probably but another maf. all this for a little hp increase. well thanks for letting me vent.

Do a search on cleaning the MAF. Also ScoobyMods.com may have some hints.

Default Mafs

Not only that but at least a new Air Flow Sensor is only $50.00 or so. The whole MAF sensor housing does not need replacing. I think that's on the scooby.mods site as well. That is, if you do need a new Maf sensor.


Edit: Yep, it's on that site.

thanks mcdade i think its alright now. on friday ill pull everything off and clean the maf one last time as i think the oil is all been pulled through. actually i keep conteplating putting the stock boxes back on with just the one filter, and gasket in the torque box. i dont know though. i still feel there is power more mid to upper with the j-bend intakes and low to mid with the stock setup. thanks to all

Go buy some MAF cleaner, unplug the maf from the harness, pull the sensor out of the housing and rinse it generously with the cleaner. Blow it off with some air. Repeat that 3 times and then re-install. Should cost you about $10 and 30 mins of your time

I've had a rough idle myself, and hanging revs if i throw the car in neutral when it's over 1500k revs. I read about the MAF sensor cleaning and I went ahead and did that. Sadly, the problem isn't fixed, and my check engine light is still on, but I'm not even sure if that is the case. does a faulty MAF sensor throw a CEL on a 1999 2.5 RS?

a faulty MAF sensor will usually cause a CEL to be triggered on any MAF based EFI system. What DTC is your CEL for?
