Rough running at all speeds. After resetting computer, car will run fine for 15-25 miles then returns to rough running. Replaced one fuel injector and cleaned all others 10000 miles ago

Running rich:

Could be a bad O2 sensor, excessive fuel pressure (bad fuel pressure regulator or plugged return line), leaky fuel injectors, dirty air filter or restricted air inlet, or a defective coolant sensor that prevents the engine management system from going into closed loop mode.
