An O2 sensor is never the cause of a fault code P0172, you through your hard earned money away. Read about the code and the possible causes at the link below.

Carb runnin rich on 88 nova w 1.6 L does carb have adjustment screws for air fuel mix or is it a solenoid only thing left to fix to pass smog


Your car should have fuel injection not a carburetor. The air/fuel ratio is controlled by the onboard computer. If it is running rich, I would suspect an O2 sensor, perhaps a dirty air filter, needs new spark plugs, or even a new catalytic converter. You need to have the computer scanned for trouble codes. The codes will give us a place to start looking for the cause of the rich mixture.

Would double check your firing order on your cap.If running worse almost positive some wires were crossed.The spark plug firing order is ( 1 - 3 - 7 - 2 - 6 - 5 - 4 - 8 ) and runs counterclockwise on the distributor cap.

1991 Camry running rich


check for vacuum leaks especially around the intake manifold gasket. Although the engine appears to be running rich, it could also be misfiring due to being too lean in one cylinder. When the cylinder doesn't fire the charge, it goes into the exhaust completely unburned and looks like a rich running condition due to the unburned fuel. If it is a vacuum leak causing the problem, the engine will run fine at road speeds but misfire at idle and not pass smog.
