    Hello all from near San Antonio Texas!

    I've put 128,000+ miles on my 1999 Chevy Suburban LT since I bought her in 2003. She's had several break downs but has never failed me on a long trip (every summer we head to Myrtle Beach, and she's also made trips to Minnesota, my home state).

    My mechanic and myself do a good job on fixing any problems. Right now I have a "Service Engine Soon" light with an associated code relating to the catalyic convertor. I have just put a K&N air filter on the rig. Would this cause this SES light??

    Talk at 'ya soon, DRG

    Welcome to the club!

    I have heard of K&N filters being over oiled, and causing the MAF sensor to mess up and throw a light or a code. But other than that I have no idea, and it would have to be physically dripping for that to happen.

    MAF dirty from air filter oil?

    Could I send a mist of SeaFoam thru the MAF to try and clean it up??
