It's exactly what is says. The cylinders on Bank 1, which is the only one on a 4 cyl, is running so rich that the computer has reached it's adaptive limits and cannot lean it any further. It can be many things, too much fuel pressure, leaking regulator diaphram, bad temp sensor, low coolant, plugged air filter and the list goes on.
