2016 SPS - Air Cleaner Element:

What are you guys using for new filter elements? Mopar or is there a more economical quality replacement from Amazon or Rock Auto?


List your part #'s. My car has about 5,000 miles on it, so it does not get driven much & I'm still on the original element, but someday it'll have to be changed!

I cleaned mine at about 30k miles and still looks like new. All I've found is how to keep it clean so I think it should last the life of the car like a K&N filter.

they are washable elements - the SPS, T/A, Demon and the '19+ Hellcat filters use this style

Shaker Hood Air filter Cleaning
1. Remove the air filter from the intake and set the filter clamp aside.

2. Measure the length of the filter media.

3. Fill a bucket with warm clean water to the depth matching the filter media measurement and add a mild household detergent or air filter cleaning solution.

4. Without allowing the solution to flow back into the inside of the air filter, submerge the filter media in to the water and let it soak for ten minutes.

5. Empty the bucket filled with dirty water and repeat steps 3 and 4.

6 Refill the bucket with clean warm water and rinse the filter by rotating the filter.

NOTE:The water should be clean with no signs of dirt in the bucket.

Refill the bucket with clean warm water and rinse the filter by rotating the filter.

7. Allow the filter to air dry. Re-install the filter on the intake system once it is dry.


Shaker Hood Removal And Cleaning

1. Remove the four nuts with the Shaker tool located in glove compartment.

2. Lift off the upper scoop.

NOTE: Be sure to clean off all debris around or inside for the shaker assembly.

3. Using a water and mild detergent clean the following locations.
— The water drain slot located at the front forward edge of the shaker assembly.
— The seals attached to the scoop and air box.
— Lower water drains located in the lower shaker assembly and air box as well as the hood interface areas for the seals.

Apply Mopar Leather, Rubber & Vinyl Protectant after cleaning to seals.

4. Re-install shaker assembly.

Yes they are - I just copied and paste the sections in the owner's manual that details the steps.

Its around the section that discusses oil types and viscosity for the various engines

What damage does it do if water gets inside the element? Wouldn't it just dry out?

you don't want the dirt / debris going to the inside surface of the filter. The filter probably has layers that get finer from outside to inside to trap the particles.

That's why only fill enough water for the element and keep the neck above the water

>thanks to @A Guy for the post - the owner's manual doesn't mention mileage intervals on when to clean it. I was running with the assumption for intervals like the paper filter elements (inspect every 12k, replace as needed / replace at 30k otherwise)
