Check your ignition system, plugs, wires, rap and rotor, i bet one of those is the culprit.

Yesterday I was leaving work and my van started running rough and it smells like gas. It was not shutting off just runs and idols rough. It was fine this morning when I took the kids to school then started...

Sounds like it could be a gasket leak, or a fuel line leak. Here's why; when the motor gets hot things expand/swell, with it acting up in the afternoon only i think it could be due to more heat causing expansion as compared to when it is cold. I would check for leaks first due to such an intense aroma of gas. Then i would look for gasket leaks around the throttle body which can be checked by spraying starting fluid around the throttle bottle and taking notice if there is any performance/idle change. IF so there is a leak, try to pin point it if possible. Most likely though i would say a fuel leak of some sort so look for a puddle of gas or wetness in the engine compartment around the intake manifold.

Have the car scanned for diagnostic trouble codes " DTL's ". That should give you a starting point

97 gmc acted like had bad gas but now also at idle with brake on engine will surge and engine sounds like it s missing

Hi Allen, The brake booster is connected to the intake manifold and that is where the low pressure is generated. If the diaphragm or one way valve, or connection pipe is leaking it will give the same effect as a leakage on the intake manifold. The symptoms you report are of a leakage on the intake manifold. To prove one way or another, disconnect the vacuum pipe for the booster and block the connection into the intake manifold. Be careful when testing as you will need to use excessive force on the brake pedal to stop. If the symptoms disappear fit a new booster, if not, pour water along the manifold and observe any bubbles where there may be a leakage. Let me know how you get on. Regards John

Acts like it's not getting enough gas when idoling, drives ok going down the road but not when idoling. Dodge Stratus 2000

I would first have the computer scanned for any codes. codes will help alot in finding the problem, you may have a bad vacuum leak or bad idle air control valve, so start with the codes, autozone parts store will scan your computer for free, get the codes and if you need more help give me the codes and i'l point you down the right path. hope this is helpful.

Problem driving

It sounds like you are having a fuel pump problem. I have seen this more that once on Chevy's. You need to check the fuel pressure. Any below 50 PSI you need a fuel pump.
