I was on the way to work, check engine light came on, and noticed backfire when letting off gas, got gome opened hood and my cone filter was off? Can a backfire blow that off? I figure I need to rplace plugs. But was wonderimg if not having my filter on could cause maf sensor to run car rich thus causing backfire. Thoughts?

You sure it backfired through the intake, not the exhaust?
Aftermarket cone air filter can just wiggle loose, clamp it down tighter next time. :)

Pass some MAF cleaner through your sensor too after having the filter off.
