Engine Aire Filter replacement - KN

For those who are interested, finally here's the engine air filter replacement from the KN Brand.


In the KN website, you will not find the TRAX or Buick Encore Air Filter (both uses the same filter), but the Vauxhall Opel Mokka yes, that uses the same air filter.

Are you also going to be using a K&N oil filter as well?
Thanks for letting us know about their air filters.

I've always been a bit leary of 'high-flow' filters. I always question what in the name of filtering was sacrificed for flow... I'v heard that K and N's can be a bit more porous then optimal. Mind you that was from the motorcycle community...

How long will the air filter last before you have to replace it?

Cheers

The owners manual will state it.
But depending on where you live, if you happen to pass by a lot of construction zones, then you may have to change it earlier than what they book says.

Gentlemen.


Just to add more information:


- The filter can last up to 200,000 Km!
- The KN Cleaning Kit that can be used are 99-5000 or 99-5050
- Both the filter and the cleaning kit can be found in Amazon also.




Regards.
