Not changing the filter could clog the AC coil which would restrict the air flow. This would usually cause the high limit to trip since the heat exchanger would over heat. But the could can be cleaned and once the air flow is restored the furnace should work OK
I'm assuming you mean the motor on the main blower. If a lot of debris/dog hair/lint got by the filter it could cause the motor to burn out.
