    Ok i searched first. And i found no results that answer the question i have. I have 17000 miles on my volant air filter/cleaner... What is the proper way to clean it? It says to wash it and oil it online... I've never oiled a filter before... How to I oil a volant filter or better yet clean it? ???

    You will have to buy an air filter oiling kit. Usually there are instructions with these kits. The biggest thing is do not over oil it, just a light coating of oil. Also if you don't want to oil you can get an AFE Pro Dry filter which does not use any oil and is washable/reusable.

    Like he said above don't over oil it. I usually clean mine and oil it up then let it sit in front of a fan to dry up a little more in case I put too much.
