Jeep Wrangler JK Cold Air Intake
Tips to Prolong the Service Life of Your Jeep Wrangler JK Cold Air Intake
The Jeep Wrangler JK incorporates both the classic and modern features of a capable off-roader. The modern Wrangler now has a wider stance and longer wheelbase. It can keep you more stable when driving on different terrains. The suspension, on the other hand, lets you easily clear trail and road debris. While suspension and wheels is one thing, there is also the engine performance. Since its introduction in 2007, the Wrangler JK incorporated newer engine designs that would benefit from aftermarket upgrades like the cold air intake. This component improves the combustion system, enabling your Jeep to churn out more power. An improved respiratory system for your Jeep means better capabilities whether you are on and off the road. So here are some maintenance tips for the Jeep Wrangler JK cold air intake.
- Clean the exterior of the pipe of your cold air intake by wiping it with a wet cloth.
Your Jeep's cold air intake is located in your engine bay where tons of dust and other particles stick to your engine components. Because of this, you need to wipe off the dirt that sticks to the pipe surface. You can use a wet cloth for easy wiping. Don't forget to follow up with a dry cloth to wipe away the water droplets.
- Remove the cold air intake assembly from the intake manifold for a thorough cleaning.
Wiping your cold air intake regularly can only do so much in terms of cleaning your part. While regular wipes can clean the surface of the pipes, their interior can benefit from a thorough wash. To do so, you have to remove the cold air intake from your Jeep Wrangler's intake manifold. After removing it, you can proceed with the cleaning.
- Check how dirty the air cleaner is. Wash or replace accordingly.
The main purpose of your cold air intake's filter is to prevent particles from entering your engine block. If it gets really dirty and clogged, your intake system will need a clean filter. You can have a new cleaner by washing or replacing it. Some filter elements can be washed while others can't. Just take note which kind is equipped in yours.
