Are there any trouble codes stored in the engine module?

If the O2 sensor is bad, it can cause the engine to run very rich. However, and rich running engine can cause the O2 sensor to fail, so it can be difficult to find out which caused which.

its running too rich if its fouling out your plugs. try a hotter spark plug and see if that helps.
