My son bought a 1999 subaru impreza. It drove fine for a couple of days. After someone took the air filter off and put it back on it now stalls in idle.
Any ideas on what could be wrong?

I have the exact same problem on my 2005 impreza 2.5 RS. It ran fine for a couple days, and I decided to check the air filter and now it stalls on idle. I checked to see if there was an idle knob that i could have bumped but its an electronically actuated throttle, so that cant be the case. im taking it to a garage soon, so we'll see what they say.
