Question type: Maintenance & Repair

hey there im a proud owner of a  2013Nissan frontier with 12,000 miles , recently ive noticed that when I stop at a light my trucks idle runs a little rough,, i had installed a k&n oiled air filter about 5 months ago.., when i took it to the dealer without ever knowing at the time the mechanic told me to get rid of that  filter,it might have had an affect on the mass air flow sensor,. so i trashes that filter,, and installed a Nissan filter on the spot,,, but didn't seem to fix the problem,, curiosly one day i took out this cassete like looking part that's installed on the air tube just outside the air box.. lol never seen anything like that, i have no idea what it is so i put it back.. i was just wondering if i need to buy a can of air flow cleaner and spray the mass air flow sensor?.. any tips ? thanks for  taking your time to read this...

Yes, buy some CRC MAF cleaner and clean the Mass Air Flow sensor as per the instructions on the can......https://www.youtube.com/watch? v=_TO7ZC5N-aA......extra oil on the elements will cause idle issues.
