Sounds like a drive belt. With the car off, rub each belt on the underside of the belt, one at a time, with wax from a candle or crayon.Cover the entire width of the belt and 10 to 12 inches of it's length then start the car. If it is the noisy belt it will change or eliminate the noise.Do this for each belt shutting off the engine each time.Change all the belts even if you find just one bad one as the others won't be far behind.

Take the belt off, and check the tensioner pulley. Try to wiggle it, and see if there's any play in it. Spin it, and see if it moves smoothly; it should not feel gritty, or wiggle at all. If it's acting like this, you should replace the tensioner unit. You may be able to get rid of the squeaking sound by shooting some oil or white lithium grease into the bearings, but it will only be temporary.

The gas smell will need to be checked for any fuel leaks. The chirping noise IF the belt and tensioner is OK, is caused be the CAM SYNCHRONIZER Its located down on the bottom of the intake manifold, where IF it had a distributor, thats where it would be. There are special tools to line up the timing of the cam sensor, so you need to know what you are doing to replace it. If you dont get it right, the CK Engine light will be on and a code for Cam out of Sync will be in the computer.
