***I meant OIL in AIR FILTER****
Lol sorry

Replaced the stock with an AirAid today.. But when I saw the stock filter, most of it was clean white but a part had some redish ... And think its oil. Is this bad?

Has there ever been a k&n in there? The oil for those filters is red. If not, hmmm...

Idk it's had a stock air intake and the filter seemed stock... Unless its a k&n drop in filter but I've seen it before and it didn't have any oil.

Is this the first time you have looked since buying the yj? Perhaps its residue or the like from some of the mechanics you've visited. If the seals on the intake housing were tight I can't imagine where a red oil would be coming from.

Yes I've checked it a couple times since I bought it but didn't check it after getting my last oil change nor after all three mechanics AND jeep dealer looked/Worked on it.

Check and see if the housing that the filter sits in has residue. Also check to see if it closes properly with the filter in place. Sure does look like oil spilt on it...

There's no oil n the housing at all, or at least I can't see it right now.
And yes it did close perfectly, I removed this since I replaced it with a CAI earlier today/yesterday.

So I grew up in a mechanics shop...I've gotta say that seeing those greasy mechanics hands with the long nails is hilarious! Kudos to you! My wife won't get near the TJ when there's a chance of grease/dirt. Ha!

That's so funny! Glad they didn't break- those things can be expensive! As far as getting dropped items, invest in a telescopic magnet. They can be cheap and will save you many headaches...and nails

for the oil i in the air filter you might wanna change out the pcv or ccv valve on top of the valve cover...if it gets plugged up with gunk, the backpressure from the engine can blow oil into the air filter.....

I would do this and drop in a new filter. Then, you'll know.
