Alright, I didn't do it on purpose, duh. I was doing a quick oil change right before it rained, and I cleaned my K&N and left it in the garage overnight to dry. Woke up and had to run to the store about 6-8 miles. No dirt roads thankfully but about an hour after I got back, I about crapped my pants when I realized what I did!

My engine bay isn't too dirty but just wondering if I did any damage? Where does the air go into the motor? Is there a way to clean it out, besides flooring it ?(which I did a few times)

Any input is appreciated.

Signed,
Dumb A55:ftard:

You should be fine. I can drive 10k+ miles around here and my filter looks like I just took it out of the box.

I've seen worse. There was a guy I worked with who drove from New Mexico to here in OKC forgetting his oil cap. Nothing happened to him either.

I wouldn't sweat it dude.

FWIW, boats don't use air filters they use flame arrestors (which don't really filter tiny particulate at all). Granted there's not much dirt/dust on the water, but if it was a dry day & you were on clean roads, I doubt you got much more filth in the intake than any boat ever gets.

if you got anything into your engine, you would have known while you were driving

Thanks everybody, seems my luck wasn't much better today...I just drove to the store and on the way noticed the tires chirpping a bit while turning corners? I get all the way there and start noticing the brakes shuddering, I'm like WTF! noW?.....while cleaning the inside of the truck today, my 2 year old turned on my 4wd H! This is the 2nd time my boys have sabotaged me! They are no longer allowed in the front seat! Just not been a good weekend for the Titan!
