May need t p s.
Get check engine codes read and post results. I suspect this to be a fuel delivery issue or throttle problem. Need codes read to be sure.
thanks, funny, but i could smell gas lately when i would shut off. hope it isn't too expensive
Not a lack of fuel, but an overage such as a faulty fuel pressure regulator or a leak in the line.
