Now driving very slow can't get on highway not fast enough
i have a 2000 chevy van carry all seris when i turn it over it sputters but wont stay started
My Chevy Express van 2000, was running very well, has good engine 350 v8
After taking out the cluster instrument for testing and replacing it, drove away and then the van began to shake - worse when at stop light, thot it was out of fuel, put 60 Litres in, shaking worse, white puffs out of tailpipe, gas smell inside coming from vents. It was a hot day, lots of stop and go, AC on max.
Drove 1 hr that day, and the next still all these symptoms, no AC on.
Mechanic did some checking around, didn't find much except 1 cylinder running slower.
1 week later started it up and no shaking, drove around the block still no shaking or gas smell.
(tho he didn't fix anything!)
Any ideas what was wrong? and if it will happen again?

Thanks!

The alignment on the van is just fine and perfectly straight. All 4 brakes have recently been replaced. This issue started before brakes were replaced and has continued. Problem occurs every time brakes are applied.
