So it is running rich- this is an old car- hard to guess but you mentioned changing the sensors? What sensors?

You might need a good mechanic, a REAL good mechanic to figure out your computerized classic-

Gracias everyone!!!! Sorry for the lateness but was in surgery 2 weeks ago coming about now. I have a good mechanic that had serviced this car since i bought from new. We had changed every little module, filters, oxygen sensor, lcv, spark plugs, distributor, sparks, ECM, throttle, u name it the smell of bad mix gasoline won't go. It runs great and the hesitation went away but Man! that stench....he is mentioning the Catalytic?
