Replace your air filter as part of your regular maintenance.
I’m replacing an air filter in my Dodge Ram 2007 2500 Diesel 5.9L with a FRAM Extra Guard Engine Air Filter CA11034 in this video. There is an indicator on the Dodge Ram intake cover which indicates when it is time to replace the filter. When this is in the red it is time to replace it. I left my filter go for several years prior to replacing it, which is something you should avoid.

The truck hasn’t seen a lot of miles in the past two years due to obvious reasons so replacing it wasn’t a priority. Be sure to follow the maintenance schedule in your owners manual for this and other maintenance items.
