I raise a red flag to any dealership that says a properly oiled air filter was the cause of a "gummed up" throttle body.
Sorry for the confusion, it was from a K and N intake, not just a drop in filter. Immediately after the instal I noticed something wasn't right. Just an update, driven about 50 miles and no fail safe mode. Checked all my connections and everything was tight. Maybe the computer had a couple brief moments of confusion, I have no idea. I bought a TPS so if it happens again ill throw that on
