This started happening about 4 days ago. I have to step on the gas and the break to keep the car on. When it just idles it turns off, and also when I start from a complete stop. Please help. Thank so much

If you smell raw fuel have towed and looked at immediately. If is a rich run condition and that is smell then that also could be source of idling/run problems. Recommend having qualified shop look at it and then hit us back with the diag info.
