Is it an "oil type" air filter? These have been known to cause problems w/ your MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor. IMO - Change it out if it is a filter that requires oiling.
Also, what does your filter minder say (this is the sensor mentioned in the previous post I believe). Hopefully you still have this filter minder gauge (spring type vacuum measurement device w/ an electrical connector on it). You have to push in on a button on top of the device to reset it. I would not like for my air flow to get so low that the trouble message was displayed. Not good to starve the engine for air.
Most folks say the stock air filter is the best. If you do not have a stock air filter, there are only a few aftermarket types that I personally would consider (AFE STage II Progaurd 7; Air Raid are two that folks have had success with).
