I saw youtube videos saying these are bad for engines since it allows more contaminants to get inside.. one guy showed damages(scratches) on his (motorcycle) pistons for using aftermarket filters and by not using filters at all. Another video I saw from a different user was he sent his oil for...
So right now I am looking at the K&N CAI as one of several mods I plan on doing this year, but while researching different CAIs/SRIs, I learned a bit about the oiled filters used on CAIs. Most trouble (getting oil on sensors and causing a CEL) seems to take place after a cleaning and re-oiling...
good afternoon fellas,
i was trying to search information regarding K&N air filters in this forum to no avail. Im just intrigued, but are K&N engine air filters even worth the extra money? or should i just stick to stock. the reason why i ask, im not sure how they react to a Mazda engine since...
I have been trying for some time to find an induction solution for the Mazda 3 which would offer some real performance improvements.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t convinced by none of the solutions I could find online (particularly the SRAM solutions from CorkSport and K&N).
Today I changed my cabin air filter, bought the OEM Filter Part#KD45-61-J6X, at Tasca Parts online and I received the same filter as per the link below:
However, the filter I pulled from the car has the...
I plan to bring my own oil and filter to the dealer when I need an oil change for my 2016 Mazda 3. Please let me know your recommendation for the lowest price online to buy OEM filters for the car (US market).
Thanks very much.

I bought an oil filter cap from the dealership to help remove the Walmart 6607 filter on my 2nd oil change.
I used an OEM filter For the 3rd oil change.
Im doing my 4th oil change now and the cap is too big for the filter.
I had to use channel locks to remove it.
I just bought my car (2014 Mazda 3) and wanted to do some maintenance myself. The dealership changed my oil and suggested to get my cabin air filter done for $58.
I declined saying I would do it myself - even though I've never done it. Anyway, I went onto Amazon and found an after market cabin...
I am looking for input on oil treated filters such as K&N vs dry flow such as AEM filters. I have been using K&N filters for more than 15 years and have been happy with them. If there is something better out there, I would like to know.
Putting the K&N filter in my 1999 F250, I saw better...
Hey all. Coming up on 25k service for my sGT HB Mazda3.
The manual calls out for the air & cabin filters to be changed out around 25 & 30k, if I remember correctly. I was thinking I would just change them both out myself at 25k.
Question is, when I punch in the mileage-based service on the...

This forum needs some content so I am creating an oil filter thread.
There are many oil filters out there that will "fit" on the skyactiv-g 2.0L engine but only a couple have been designed specifically for the Skyactiv-G. The following filters have been designed specifically for the Skyactiv-G...
This is the oil filter wrench the techs at the Mazda dealership use. On some Mazda vehicles (my 2013 Mazda3 i Skyactiv, for example) there is no clearance through the access door in the underbody panel to use an adjustable strap wrench.
This is the best and easiest-to-use tool (in combination...
