Car stalls after changing air filter
My car has an automatic transmission.
It may not have anything to do with the new filter you put in. The most likely cause of the problem of stalling after installing an air filter is that the inlet air tube has a crack in it or the connection to the mass air sensor connector came loose. Check to make sure the inlet air tube is not cracked where you bent it to put the filter in. If it is cracked then wrap it with duct tape until you put a new one on. You will find this to let you drive it until you can get a new tube installed.
