Well. Replace the air filter and go for a longish drive. It will clear any residual vapour.

It would be better if you check the hose from your air filter to your engine. If its clear, alls good. If it has some moisture, you could go for a longish drive after replacing the air filter.

The service advisor is hell bent on not giving me a filer, he says I wont be able to replace it. I might end up creating issues in the engine n all. Is it so complex really? Could I go wrong? he says I have to give him an undettaking that he issued it to me on my request and he wont be responsible for any engine damage :O

Any comments?

Replacing an air filter tends to be about the easiest job on an engine. Rates slightly higher in complexity then checking the oil level.

+1. All you need is a screwdriver. And as members of this forum and living in a dusty country, I'm sure most people keep an extra filter in the car/home to swap a dusty filter out between service intervals.
