Default From the what is it file

Had my truck a little over a month and this weekend decided to replace vacuum lines thinking that might help with the truck wanting to stall after warm up at lights or with hard braking and sure enough found some lines dry rotted and cracked. I found something along the way I wonder if somebody could help me
I. D. I took it with me to the parts store but they said just put a sponge in it to replace the filter like piece. It is in the air cleaner housing and connects to a hose at the top of the engine. Newbie question Iím sure.

Should the filter still be available at a parts store? Or did the parts guy hit it right to just use a dense sponges

It looks more like a dense cotton type filter.

Autozone sells replacement filter that are cut to fit for that and they are only like 3 bucks, look over in the diy off valve section and you will find them, and replace it
