That code means that the 02 sensor has detected that the engine is running rich. Have you ever done a tune up? New plugs, wires, air filter, PCV valve and clean the throttle body. First though, pull a plug and see if it's black. If so, that means something is causing it to run rich. If the plugs look good, then I don't know what the hell to tell you. Check the air filter, maybe.
