Can I use any filter cleaning/oil solution on air filter
I purchased my car used a few years back, but I'm not positive on the brand of the air filter the last owner installed. It resembles a K&N filter in both shape and colour (slight red tinge indicative of the oil), however there is no definite branding on the filter itself.
Is the K&N cleaning solution kit (more specifically the oil) safe to use on any filter, or is it made to work specifically with the K&N filter?

I personally would changed to paper filters if I were you. K&N have arguable good points and bad points, but the oil will sling off after you clean/oil the filter and that will cause issues with your MAF. Plus you need to dedicate the time to let the filter dry. I'm sure somebody will chime in and say they have never had that problem, but for me it's not worth the potential hassle again for a questionable gains.
