Always cranks fine but some times won't turn over. Cranks strong and then slightly fires when key is being turned off. I can smell gas vapors at exhaust pipe. Check engine light comes on occasionally but the last time it started flashing and had loss of power.

On the 3.7L V6 and 4.7L V8 the camshaft position sensor may fail and cause the engine to crank but not start or it can cause intermittent stalling. A failed camshaft sensor will require replacement.
If the engine cranks but does not start, or starts and stalls, the fuses should be inspected,...
check engine light came on and a P1740 code came up.
I have this no bus, lights, engine check light, ABS, parking brake, all come when the key is turned to the on position, but still starts.
