Chevrolet silverado 1500 LT sportside: Hey, friend. Have you

This answer was rated:

Hey, friend. Have you seen the k&n oiled air filter cause problems on the 5.3 engine in chevy trucks? Is it only when over oiled, or should these things be thrown away?
Hello and thank you for trusting me with your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to help you with your problem. I never recommend a oiled type filter on any vehicle that has a mass air flow sensor so I would get rid of that filter. I have read and seen any kind of oil in the filter get on the MAF sensor and cause problems. Let me know if you have more questions on this I am always willing to help, Thanks.
