K&N makes a cleaning and re-oil kit. Maybe $15. If you don't have the original instructions here are some general rules.
1. DO NOT USE COMPRESSED AIR. It will blow holes in the gauze the filter is made out of.
2. DO NOT USE HARSH CHEMICALS, again it hurts the filter material.

If I remember right you can use mild soap and water, flush the filter with running water from the inside out. Although automatic tranny fluid looks the same as K&N oil, I;m told it is different. Use K&N oil.

Best advise? Buy the kit.
