Highly doubtful. Probably just a coincidence. Our local Kmart/Sears stocks Spectra brand air filters, and I have replaced my OEM with one. When was the last time you had a tune-up? That would probably be a much needed service.

Sounds good. It is probably due for a tune-up if the vehicle has 116K miles. Welcome!
