How bad did I mess up?
Well, I took my filter off lastnight to clean it, its an AEM oil free filter, and i let it dry over night and put it on this morning. I guess I didnt rinse it well enough, started the truck and it was idling really bad so I hit the gas a few times and let it idle and then it died.
SO wth is going on, I pop the hood, checked a few things then decided to take the filter off to check inside it, pull the tube off and what do I see? suds, everywhere, pull the filter off and its loaded with suds, I cleaned out the tube and put it back together without the filter and started the truck, its running better but its idleing kinda bad, almost dies and it kinda smells, I still have the filter off, rinsed it really well and am letting it dry now but i had the truck out for a quick errand and its still idling kinda bad, and still smells kinda funny, did I mess up really bad here? Im hopeing maybe its something simple like suds got into the MAF, should I try cleaning it and whats best to use to clean it? Thanks in advance for any input and suggestions.
