Ok here are some things to check. You will find a small vacuum line running from the back of the engine to a small rubber "Y" connection just in front of the fuse box. It is usually strapped to the large black vacuum line going to the brake booster. One of the connections goes to a yellow vacuum check valve that has 3 connections on it. One of these connections (on the Y connector) goes to the line leading to the economy guage. Check these vacuum circuits carefully. I have seen the Y connector get hard, start leaking and generally fail. This would cause a vacuum leak and affect the mixture of the engine. Also check the vacuum connection on the back side of the engine for leaks or broken parts.
