That is possible- I opened up the engne air filter to see how dirty it was. The heavy pollen season shows; even a light tap on the filter emitted a puff of green pollen, and I repeatedly tapped the filter and tons of pollen/dust came up. Records show I replaced the filter just 40.000km (25k miles) ago last May. I'll buy a can of the MAF cleaner and try cleaning, do you think it's worth throwing money at a new air filter too?

Also, I have not replaced the O sensors yet but based on my searches, this isn't a likely cause for those two codes.

Given that there are no driveabiliy issues, is this something that I need to get done ASAP to avoid damage?
