something else..like for example im driving and
everything is running find then maybe i stop at the
red light then its shakes then i get to my
destination an hour or so im driving again and it all
find then maybe the next day it skakes again or

Since it did not start missing until you replaced air filter recheck air filter making sure it is seated in properly and cover is secured.

You must have moved a wire or connection when replacing the filter. Check the coil and wiring for cylinder #3. If at or over 100K, t's time to replace the spark plugs anyway.
