What would doing the air filter replace ment do? If the seal is bad and maybe air is making it around the seal it might make noie. Otherwise I do not see any reason to replace it, maybe inspect it.
If it just got worked on and had the O2 sensor replaced and is throwing a code, there is probably a vacuum leak somewhere. Certinaly not a reason to go and spenad a bunch of money. Trouble codes need to be looked at and then cleared if it is a lean/rich code, then there is more than likely a vacuum leak casuing the problem and the sound. Both things that can be fixed without spending any money.
Just take things one at a time.
