YOUR GAS SMELL MIGHT BE THE FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR LEAKING UP THRU THE CENTER OF THE UNIT JUST LIKE AN OIL PRESSURE SENDER WOULD. IT IS LOCATED IN THE FUEL RAIL

Has to do with valve timing. Check out this thread, http://townhall-talk.edmunds.com/direct/view/.f0f642e/94
Also this is for Toyota, but a good description of the problem area. http://www.ncttora.com/fsm/04-06-Tundra/techinfo.toyota.com/ileaf/06toyrm/06toypdf/06rmsrc/06tundra/di/eg2uzfe/cip00111.pdf

You dont say what engine you have so I ASSUME its the 4 cylinder??? I dont know what your car needs because I dont know what has been checked, but even the wrong viscosity engine oil or low oil level can cause this code. Or it could be a cam sensor problem. I would have a professional repair shop check it out and recommend repairs.

I think I know why you are having trouble understanding this. Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0014 is NOT a "cam position sensor" code. It is an "Exhaust Camshaft Actuator" code...BIG DIFFERENCE! When the exhaust cam actuator is malfunctioning, it causes your exhaust cam to be out of time. This can cause ALL KINDS of drive-ability problems!
The Camshaft Position (CMP) Actuator is attached to the camshaft and is hydraulically operated in order to change the camshaft position relative to the position of the Crankshaft Position (CKP). The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) controls the camshaft timing by sending a pulse to the Camshaft Actuator Solenoid. The soleniod controls the flow of engine oil pressure to the camshaft actuator. By this method the PCM can change the camshaft timing by up to 25 degrees.
DTC P0014 sets when:
(A) The PCM has enabled the CMP actuator.
(B) The difference between the desired CMP angle and the actual CMP angle is greater than 6 degrees
(C) The CMP actuator is steady for 3 seconds
(D) The condition is present for 13.5 seconds
This code can be caused by several diferent things including the wrong viscosity engine oil, PCM failure, Cam Actuator Solenoid failure, faulty Cam Actuator circuits, and a few others.
The transmission hard-shift can be caused by this or it may be a completely separate problem. There are several Technical Service Bulletins (TSBs) for your transmission having a hard shift problem. One of them (TSB 04-07-30-013B) even states that a hard shift can be caused by contamination of the Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF)
I would recommend scanning ALL of your modules (PCM, ABS, BCM, IPC, AIR BAG, etc.) to see if there are any communications faults recorded or any other faults that may have any relation to your problem such as power loss, or ground faults in one or more of the circuits so a COMPLETE diagnosis can be achieved.
