As a consequence the cylinder falls enriched fuel mixture and as a result, at a minimum, can fail spark plug. If the air filter is warped or even torn, then the cylinder gets dust, sand, etc., all this abrasive, as a result - failure of the piston (rings, piston, cylinder) and timing systems (valve).
