86 astro minivan runs rich and idles rough when stopped at a light but runs fine while driving?
i replaced most sensors, mapp, idle positioning, ECM, IAC. Could it be the fuel metering?

Do you
have the same problem?

Probable causes of an engine running rich are as follows:

1. Excessive fuel pressure can be cause by restricted fuel return line
2. Defective Oxygen Sensors.
3. Leaking injectors and fuel pressure regulator.
4. Coolant temperature sensor out of calibration.
5. Restricted air intake system.
