    You might need to wash them and put on the special lube stuff to keep it in top shape.

    You could also look at replacing it with a better filter. Look at these.

    Well performance filters come in different colors. K&N are usually purple, and the other brands all seem to use their own colors too. What you should know is that after cleaning them most of them need to be "re-oiled" to work properly. I would try to figure out what brand of filter it is and find out if your filter requires the re-oiling.
