97 sl2 poor gas mileage. I got a code po141 and replaced the cat- conv. O2 sensor. The sensor was black with carbon. Are there problems related??? Or is the car running that rich???

Yes, yes, and yes. (to answer your questions in order, lol )

But yeah, start by looking in the S-series section, you can get more/better answers there than in here.

You can also start by replacing your ECTS/connector and the thermostat. Instructions are in the New/Returning S-series owners' checklist in S-series general
