I don't know about the smell of gas, but we had the same problem. the first time it happened, (I don't mean it happened once - it happened repeatedly) a bottle of fuel injector cleaner solved it,
The next time it happened ( a couple years later) I was stranded at the first red light when I got into the city. The car would stall each time i put it in drive. It would idle fine i neutral & park, but stall in and other gear. A guy stopped to help me - he was from a reputable transmission chain. he said the problem was with ? ?? in the transmission ( I can't remember exactly 0 it was about years ago) he fiddled with a switch that locked up in behind the drivers side front tire. he couldn't get it unlocked, so the car was towed to his transmission shop. They repaired the problem and I have not had this issue since!

What you have is PROBABLY a bad Idle Air Control stepper motor... if the car stays running with your foot on the gas, and only dies when you let your foot OFF the gas... or if it dies when you shift (again, cause you foot is off the gas) that is definitely the problem. The stepper motors are kind of pricey (over $300) at the dealership, but you should be able to get one from an auto parts store for 150 or so. easy as heck to replace, it has three 8MM bolts into the throttle body, just unplug it, unscrew the bolts, and put the new one in... just be sure to be careful with the new o-ring... DON'T LOSE IT! :)

I can only offer these few ideas.

The thermostat is found at the end of the top radiator hose . Find the top radiator hose and follow it to the engine .There you will find a thermostat housing with the end of the hose attached . There will be 2 bolts holding down the housing to the engine. Undo the bolts and pull the housing off and the thermostat will be there.

When you changed the battery the computer must re-learn the setting again. If it continues have a OBD II reader plugged in and check for codes.
