    RE: AIR FILTER OIL

    Your hobby shop will carry air filter oil for your RC, and an auto shop will carry it for your vehicle. Either one would work.

    RE: AIR FILTER OIL


    ORIGINAL: k3nv

    a guy at one of my hobby shops told me that you can soak the filter in nitro fuel, let the methanol evaporate leaving just the oil and you don't need air filter oil? is this true?

    My opinion is : Why would you want to take a risk of hurting your engine for a $5 bottle of oil that will last forever??? Maybe if you had nothing else, including vegtable oil....LOL.....then maybe try what you were told. I will not be spending the money for a new motor cause I din't want to pony up $5. BTW this is my opinion!

    RE: AIR FILTER OIL

    I went to the LHS to grab a few things before my Hurricane arrived. I asked him if he had filter oil and he said to just use 3 in 1 oil! I just smiled and said ok, I'll just use the BelRay filter oil I use for my 2 stroke dirt bike.

    Do some of these people want you to suck dirt so you have to come back for engine rebuild parts or a new engine?

    RE: AIR FILTER OIL

    everyone has an opinion in the hobby and some stuff may work for them, i personally use after run oil in the engine and rc air filter oil on the air filters, for $10 or less for the both of them and about a years supply for me and i have over 50 rc's, i find it a cheap investment.

    RE: AIR FILTER OIL

    i know this threads old but...
    i saw on the hpi walkthrough on how to clean your air filter, they say use marvel mystery oil as air filter oil. is that as good as the normal air filter oil or K&N air filter oil?
    i thought people used marvel mystery for after run oil [sm=confused.gif]

    RE: AIR FILTER OIL

    spray it on, and work it into the filter element.

    I have a bottle of Ipone foam air filter oil (spray), nice tall bottle, has lasted a good 2 years.

    Paying for foam air filter oil at hobby shops is nuts, I spend maybe twice as much but get about 4-10 times more (at a atv/dirtbike dealership)

    Go to PepBoys, AutoZone, Advance Auto Parts, Oreily's(sp?). They have K&N air filter oil.

    You would have better luck at a Motorcycle shop looking for filter oil................Not to many people in the Automotive business have a clue about filter oil unless there old farts like me and remember when oil was all we used for a filter before the filters they use now days[:-]

    Do not use K&N filter oil, that is for a completely different filter material (cotton). You NEED a oil for foam air filters. Belray, Ipone, JP1, all good examples.

    RE: AIR FILTER OIL

    PJ-1 air filter oil. Its for dirtbikes. You can get it at any moto-sport dealer. A big can is about $9.00 and will last a long time. I use it on my RC and 3 dirt bikes and I get about a year out of the can....

    RE: AIR FILTER OIL

    do NOT use K&N filter oil on a FOAM AIR FILTER. K&N filter oil is for fabric filters only. K&N filter oil on a foam air filter does not block dirt like FOAM AIR FILTER oil does, thus it will ruin your engine.

    Any atv/dirtbike dealership will tell you the same when you buy a foam air filter, you use foam air filter oil and not K&N filter oil since its not a cotton element.

    Maintaining a Foam Air Filter (from a manual included at our local dealership that comes with the filter)

    A) Gently knock all the crud off the filter before you apply an air filter cleaning agent. Most motorcycle chemical manufacturers have a suitable product for cleaning air filters.

    B) Apply the appropriate cleaner and let it work for a few minutes as you knead the filter with your hands, don't "wring" the filter just massage the cleaner in thoroughly. Rinse the filter from the inside out with hot water.

    C) Wash the foam filter three more times in a solution of dish soap and hot water, this will remove the remainder of dirt as well as clean off the oily residue left by the first cleaning solution.

    D) Dry your foam filter by first squeezing the excess water out and then let dry. Never wring or stretch your foam filter as it could tear at the seams. Let the filter air dry in the sun for an hour or two.

    E) Apply fresh foam filter oil to the inside and outside elements as well as the sealing flange or lip, do not use K&N or fabric filter oil on foam filters this will result in dirt inside the engine. Squeeze out any excess oil as necessary. Apply a liberal amount of wheel bearing grease to the sealing flange before you install the filter. If your foam filter doesn't have a rubber grommet around the eyelet where the hold down bolt passes through, then apply some grease there as well.

    RE: AIR FILTER OIL

    there is a problem with the PCV system. this system circulates crankcase air and oil particles in the air back into crankcase by pushing them back somewhere back through the intake. there is probably a problem with the PCV valve stuck open allowing too much oil to pass through it subsequently collecting on your air filter.
