    WTF, so i installed my K&N intake 4-5 months back. Everything worked fine. A few months ago, I notice that my idle was going from 500-1000rpm. Ive done some research and ppl have been having problems with the MAF going bad because of the oil of the filter. Ive cleaned it and it kind of help but still no dice. Also, i can notice my truck having a problem with getting air in at idle but i have no problem when I'm driving. My truck has 94k on it and I do the regular Maint. on it.

    My question is, Does anyone have a similar problem or should I blew up my truck and start over?

    I was having some problems with a MAF sensor a while back. I just did what I was told and blasted it with cleaner. Didn't really help the situation, so I took it back out. The second time, I got a bottle of rubbing alcohol and a q-tip and just swabbed it a little. Worked great afterwards.

    Don't over-oil the filter (to prevent oil from getting on the MAF)
