I'd check the ETM (Engine Throttle Management) module. It is up under the fuel rail on the intake side of the air inlet. It gets deposits on the butterfly valve and it lets air in when it's not supposed to. Confuses the MAF and ECM. You can remove it and clean it up and reinstall. Also check your vacuum hoses. Over time they get brittle with age and heat. Cracks in them can leak to the ECM trying to adjust fuel/air mixture.

Check to see if the intake hose from the filter has no holes in it. If there is a split in it after the Mass airflow sensor, it can do that. The computer gets super confused, and keeps trying to change the air fuel mixture.

The most common problem is either the blower motor or the speed control resistor. Both items can be accessed by removing the glove box and panel below it.

Change the filter as suggested and let me know if that takes care of it, also you should run a self test of the powertrain control module to see if it has a trouble codes, kragen and other stores like kragen do it for free.
