Q: How do you remove debris that has gotten inside the air intake system? on 2001 Lexus GS300

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
Car feels like its going to shut down when first accelerating. Feels like its not getting enough gas. This all started right after changing the air filter.

First make SURE the big rubber tube did not split when the filter was replaced, or it is still connected properly!!! To clean debris, use a vacuum cleaner, that's a lot easier than removing the air cleaner assembly.
Double check that big black rubber tube, it can not have ANY leaks, or the engine will NOT run right!!!
Also be sure no trash gets in, or has gotten into the intake or top of the filter box.
