I'm aware of dozens of cases off the top of my head (that I've been personally involved in) where an owner over-oiling a K&N during the routine cleaning led directly to MAF failure, DTC codes being set, and in one case, damage to the engine.Hi
I am not aware of any case where changing to a simple K+N sports filter, for example, led to an error code. Above all, the quality of the K+N plate filter is significantly better in my experience!
Just because you and I know what "looks right" and is appropriate when doing routine maintenance tasks, doesn't mean everyone does. People do really wild stuff to their cars on the basis of enthusiasm, and sometimes they damage or destroy things. And many of those same people then want to construe it as someone else's fault and expect a fix on someone else's dime.
The Venn diagram overlap between practical ignorance and sense of entitlement is large.
