dont take soo much in consideration after you have make all this things, some time is on only for any wire faulty, or a shrt electrical arc in any place in wire system. ask auto tap mechsnics for this maybe they have similar case before.

If it's not idling and has problems starting, it's probably the IAC motor. It's located on the throttle body. Follow the airfilter box all the way to the engine, where the rubber flex hose attaches. The throttle body should be the first aluminum part you come to. Attached to the side you'll find small little aluminum part with a small wire harness attached. Unplug it, take the IAC motor off and clean inside with carb cleaner. This should fix the problem with the idle.

that gas smell is probably a bad catalytic converter. sorry to say though, ur car is newer than a 96 and it will have to be replaced.

The IAC vavle is located behind the EGR valve on the driver side of the motor. You will disconnect 2 hoses and unplug the wire harness from the system. The unit will come right out. Just make sure that the hoses you take off go back in the same place. Also make sure that you have the negative battery wire disconnected. I had this same issue on my 2001 Escape, had to replace both the EGR and IAC so check both carefully.

There is a large vac line coming straight down from the throttle body that goes to the PCV system. See if it has a hole in it. It is likely sucking air.
