Oiley Air Filter Box

Asked by Mar 04, 2010 at 10:47 AM about the 2006 Dodge Ram 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

In my 06 5.7 Hemi I went to check my air filter and to my surprize the air filter appered to have a lot of oil in it and also the bottom of the air box appeared oiley.  Whats up w/ that? is this normal?

If it isn't an aftermarket cloth filter then someone probably soaked it with too much oil after it was cleaned last.

well first off your not supposed to clean basic filters because theyre paper elements, only the after market brands like K&N get oiled and cleaned. but other than that i cant really answer the question but i would definitely replace the filter

oil was filled too quickly at last oil change. the oil backs up in the filler neck when filled too quickly and runs down the hose to the air box.
