New member and a new to me 2014 Pilot EX. 110,000miles. It was fine for the test drive and for the next 2 days after. Maintenance history shows mostly oil changes, so I went to Autozone to get routine maintenance items. When I started the car (truck?) up to leave it barely ran and rpm's were around 300. Stalled several times. I was nursing it home (I live 2 blocks away)and then it began running fine. Was replacing the air filter when I got home and this is what I found! Like it was never changed ever. I replaced it and cleaned the MAF sensor. Runs fine now, but might be coincidence. My question is...do you think this nasty air filter was the cause of that problem? I don't see how it could breathe though that. Pic shows old and new filter.
