M10 help

hi to all...finaly found a forum that lets me post and reply upon singing up..lol but yes I'm here to see if i can get some info on the M10 engine i have in my 318. not running right now have problem with the idle. its hard to start fouls the plugs, in low rpm it idles like a muscle car, the rpm goes form 500 to 1500 fast when i give it gas it lags but once it has passed 3000 rpm it runs fine up to red line. and car smells rich. bought the car from a guy and the car has new o2 sensor, wires plugs, distributor, cap, and rotor.
if any body knows what is going on. and can give me a heads up it would be appreciated. thank you

Recheck ignition timing, track down any vacuum leaks, replace fuel filter if that hasn't been done in a while.
