Q: Would a coolant sensor malfunction cause a Lexus LS400 1996 to run rough & die on 1996 Lexus LS400

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
Has never over-heated. When engine died smelled gasoline. Coolant was topped off way before. Engine Icon and Trac/off icon on.Today it started but could hear it missing . Slowly it smoothed itself out. Did NOT drive. Could this just be a tune-up, oil-change-needed, tranny filter replacement thing or could coolant sensor being out cause this?

If the coolant sensor reads too low then it would dump to much fuel causing it to flood I would have it scan tested to see what the temp reads
