I had the oil changed today air filter was very dirt in only one area. Mechanic said this was due to a injector failure. Could this be true?

Dirty Filter

Thanks For the reply. I had an injector replaced under warranty awhile back thought it may have happened again.

Sounds like the mechanic was phishing.

That's a good one. You should ask him how that would have happened, I'd be interested to hear his wild explanation for that one haha! I'd call BS on that one.

If some yahoo gave me that explanation I'd ask him to put it in writing with his signature on the bottom along with his credentials from what ever tech school he came from.....Then I'd take it straight to his Supervisor and ask what kind of scams they run at the Stealership to rip people off! If the Supervisor substantiated the mechanics claim I'd post the letter on every media outlet I could find...........

No, but there's an hose that connects to the air box. The other side of the hose is connected right next to where they put the oil in. Oil goes in too fast, runs down the hose, and wets your filter. I'm sure the oil helps it pick up dirt too.

You've got to put the oil in slowly to minimize this from happening.
