It has always been a challenge to fully optimize the internal combustion system of vehicles.

Improved quality of air means better combustion. And better combustion means more power. We have a handful of aftermarket products that aid better air induction systems such as the Dodge Ram 1500 cold air intake. If your Dodge truck is already equipped with one, here are some tips on how to take care of this component. These steps are easy to follow and you can perform them in the convenience of your garage. Read along.
- Wipe the cold air intake assembly once in a while.
You can keep the cold air intake assembly looking tidy in your engine bay by wiping it with a clean cloth once in a while. This gets rid of light layers of dirt that it has accumulated as you drive to your destinations. Whether you do it once a week or once every two weeks, it doesn't matter as long as you don't forget doing it. Reduce the dirt sticking to it by this simple step.
- Disassemble the cold air intake assembly from your engine before a thorough cleaning.
To be able to do a thorough cleaning on your cold air intake, you have to remove it from the engine bay. Carefully unscrew the mounts and take them out piece by piece. Carefully lay the parts on a clutter-free surface for a pre-cleaning check.
- Inspect the air cleaner and see how much dirt it has accumulated.
You should take out your air cleaner and inspect its condition. If it has collected too much dust already, you can either get rid of it or wash it. Before you decide what to do, you must check the kind of material your filter is made of.
- Wash the filter with detergent and dry it before reinstallation.
If you have determined that your filter material can be washed, do so with extreme caution. After washing and rinsing it, let it dry before reinstalling to your truck.
