I have an 01 Tacoma too and have been poking around some Tacoma forums and learned that K&N's filter (and other re-useable types)sometimes cause dirty sensors in the intake leading to poor performance and less MPG.

Anyone else experience less performance with their aftermarket filter ?

If the filter is over oiled it can cause problems with the MAF sensor but 4.1s don't have this i believe as all they have is an IAT sensor. I've been using a re-oilable filter of one type or another for a few years now in my 4.1 without any problems.

Yeah, that oil really needs to be dry before you run the car. What I do is to have a paper filter on hand and use that for about a day until the servicable filter is completly dry. A full day may be an overkill.....but you get the idea.

I have a K&N filter for my 2000 rav4 and was just wondering how many miles till I have to clean and reoil it?
