Cleaning your Oiled Filter is Easy: One of the benefits of using a Pro5 or MaxFlow5 Oiled filter is that you can clean and reuse the cotton gauze filter. Depending on driving and environmental conditions; the filter will become caked with dirt and require cleaning. A two-stage filter recharger kit with cleaner and oil is required. It is recommended to clean the filter on your CORSA Intake at least two times a year. Replacement filters are available through CORSA. Also, if you experience a sudden decrease in mileage or engine performance, the filter will need to be cleaned.
Remove the oiled filter from your air intake and tap it on a hard surface to remove any loose dirt.
Liberally spray the filter with filter cleaner and allow it to soak in for about 10 minutes. Avoid petroleum based products because they will soften and destroy sealing edges.
Rinse off the dirt from the inside of the filter out. Never use high pressure nozzles or air; they could tear and distort the cotton gauze media.
Allow the filter to air dry in a clean area. Never use applied heat or an air vent to dry the filter. Do NOT reinstall a wet or damp filter. The oiled filter must be completely dry before it is installed.
Using air filter oil, apply a thin coating to each pleat. The oil will soak into the pleat and after 20 minutes you will see areas that need to be touched up with more oil.
