Throw it in the trash. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

K&N filters are really restrictive when they are dirty, because they are a surface filter.In other words, the outside surface is the only filtering element. Get an Amsoil filter, they are far superior. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

You want us to hold your hand through this entire process? <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">
I ditched my K&N after Moab when I saw the intake had fine red dust in it. Not much, but enough. I got an Amsoil now. Haven't been back to Moab <IMG SRC="smilies/crybaby2.gif" border="0"> but it seems to be better and it's WAY cheaper too and WAY easier to clean. If this doesn't work, I'll go to a factory Toyota filter.

I have been running a K&N for about 6 years now with no trouble, really like it..
As for the origional question. I use Castaral supper clean to clean it, and use motorcycle spray on filter oil, works sweet.

WRONG!...Keep it. All Ya gotta do is TAKE THE TIME to clean and re-oil it occasionally. Been running them in ALL my vehicles for years.

Judging from his question, it sounds like his is "super dirty", so I would guess he isn't in the habit to take the time to clean and re-oil it.

My thought exactly. Did you read the instructions in the back of the package ?
You can read,can you?I's not rocket science man,its just a damm filter,wash it and re-oil it,it is as simple as that <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0">
