Wrong Air Filter - Engine Damage?
Hello All - I need some advice from the sages of these pages...
I've had a recurrent MAF problem, and just found out why - my V6 was "fitted" with a TS air filter (so effectively no air filter at all as it rattled around the filter housing) for at least 5000 miles, and possibly 17000 miles. I'll may go into why in a later post once the reputable garage involved has had a chance to respond to the email I just sent them.
The MAF has been replaced, a pipercross filter from Alfaholics fitted, and the car is running better than it ever has, but my question is:
Given that it's running beautifully, what is the likelihood that the engine has been long term damaged?
Thanks in advance for the thoughts.
