Question

I have a 1982 Camaro 350CI with TPI,mass airflow sensor. It runs so rich it stalls and the fumes burn the eyes. The engine light flashes me a code 15 I wonder if that is where i should be looking? Any help would be appreciated.

Code 15 is "coolant sensor, low temp fault". Without knowing more of what the car is doing and when, I'd suggest replace the coolant sensor, clear the ecm & try from there.

82 or 92? First thing I'd try is to unplug the coolant sensor and replug. Maybe it is slightly corroded, not unusual. Look for the sensor in a cooling water jacket with black and white (slightly yellow?) wires. Front middle of intake just above water pump.

Thank you. I checked the coolant sensor plug in and found that it had come off I feel kind of stupid that I missed looking at that. I plugged it in and all is fine. Thanks again.

I looked at the coolant sensor plug-in
and it had come off somehow, so I plugged it back in and it runs fine. I feel stupid having overlooked it in the first place. Thank you for your help.
