This sort of problem is difficult owing to the complexity of modern vehicles and i would suggest you take it to a dealer as without my head under the bonnet its very difficult ,you have changed the regular items that could cause it so its possible you have a malfunctioning ECU fault and without the correct software to read the problem then no chance

SOURCE: Suburban runs lean with K&N air filter

Check for vacuum leaks, especially around the intake manifold gasket. You can do this by running the engine and spraying intake cleaner around the gasket. Any vacuum leak will **** in the intake cleaner and cause the idle to change.

It could also be a dirty Mass Air Flow sensor, faulty oxygen sensor on bank 2, plugged catalytic converter, or plugged or faulty fuel injectors - thus, it would never hurt trying the sea foam.

Also ensure the filter is not over-oiled

Anytime the check engine light comes on, you check the computer for trouble codes. The codes will not tell you what to replace, but rather what to check.
Let me know what you find out.

If it runs rough all the time, could be a bad coil pack/wires. If just starting and hesitates on acceleration, I would suspect the throttle position sensor.

could be one of your o2 sensors ,coil pack on your spark plugs could be them,clogged catalytic convertor pretty hard to dtermine could be these.hook it up to scanner to make sure it should give you code
