Default Civic 99 LX -P0172 (system rich) error code

Hi there
I have a problem with my old Honda. Recently it had a problem with shifting gears -rough action and it needed a help to shift to 4 (relase accelerator for a moment) . I thought that it is known transmission problem . Yesterday it lost torque and I have only two gears left sometimes It'll switch to 3-rd. I went to a local transmission repair shop and they scaned the problem .They said that it's probably not an AT because Error code shows P0172 (fuel too rich) and that someting is choking the engine and it causes AT (transmission) malfunction.
Car was in a body shop for a while and after return my friend who wanted to help me with weak cooling system overfilled AC with fluid causing nasty choking engine response. Since than I had troubles with transmission also fuel economy seemed to deteriorate. It may be unrelated.
Where to start ??
REgards, L

Default Solved ! (almost)

Muffler (which I changed 2 yrs ago) deteriorated (burned out) to the point of clogging an exhaust pipe. Thanks . L
