"reset your engine"?? this makes no sense. If you mean what happens if you don't reset your check engine light, then the answer is usually that the car will put itself in fail safe mode or limp mode. Depending on model and what code is causing the check engine light. Either way gas mileage will suffer, and usually car is limited in RPM's and power.

What happens if you dont change an air filter on the 2002 Lincoln LS?

Nothing good will come of it. Over time the filter will become so clogged that it impedes the flow of air into the engine. This will cause a RICH MIXTURE situation that can not be compensated for by the engine's computer. The Check Engine Light will come on, and the engine will not run properly (rough, stumble, etc). Along the way gas mileage will decrease noticeably.
