Today I decided it was time to change my air filter. I pulled the filter and sure enough the foam pre-filter was black and so dirty I don't see how any air got through. To my surprise, when I pulled back the foam, the paper filter was as clean as the day it was installed. Why can't I just wash the pre-filter and put it all back together? I didn't, I bought a new filter from Napa which includes the foam pre-filter.

Full Timer, I use WIX air filters on my HEMI and they are like you said, sort of a FRAM orange
in color. But sense WIX make the NAPA filters, I think you have a WIX filter and not a FAM... TENN.

Rigrunner,
It should be a simple job but for some reason mine was a pain. The filter box is only accessible from the right wheel well. You need to get up and cozy with the inside of your front tire (I needed to unplug the MAF sensor), undo the 3 clips on the top of the box, lift the cover up and out. The pain was getting it put back together. Either the NAPA filter is slightly fatter or my cover fits REAL tight because it was a pain to get the tabs on the bottom of the cover back in the slots.

Full-Timers,
Hey thanks for the reply. Sounds as hard as and the same as our old 96 Bounder.

You can order directly from WIX. Wix Online and their prices are good to.

I REALLY hate websites that want all your information before they will tell you anything. I usually pass and go on to the next site. It's just bad business!

I changed the air filter today with the NAPA 6136, easiest maintenance work I've done so far. Didn't take 5 minutes and I didn't have to remove the MAP connector, there was enough slack so I could remove the old and install the new.
