But while I was poking around under the hood today I noticed I could smell gas while the motor was running and thought maybe running rich or lean could cause the problem.
Gas smell under the hood could be a cracked evap system hose.
That's where it was coming from on mine.
The little S shaped hose to the solenoid was cracked.
Trouble running when you first start could be the IAC ( idle air control )
