    Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem. My mate's VL is all of a sudden running rich. What could be causing this? Cheers

    afm might of craped it self, get a muilty meter and check it to see if its 382ohms, the o2 sensor or temp sensor could be stuffd as well as these three things all cause vls to run rich or lean,
    check the afm first,

    The vaccum hose could have fallen off the fuel pressure regulator which will make the fuel pressure higher than usual

    could be a stuffed lead or plug. start simple first. mine was running rich and a lead had welded itself to the dizzy cap.
