What would cause 93 chevy c1500 rough idle smells of excess gas at exhaust

Does the truck seem fine when you first start it & then acts up when it reaches operating temp?
That would lead me to look at my oxygen sensor, a bad sensor can cause the truck to run "rich" which would explain the fuel smell in the exhaust.

My 96 grand cherokee acts like it is not getting gas

I have a 96 also and also had that problem #1 get the fule filter replaced.. #2 get some car/injector cleaner in the gas. #3 get some spray for carb and open up the air filter and shoot the cleaner in while running the engine.. You also can change the spark plugs and roter and cap and do a nice tune up and it will run like a new car..

Check/replace your O2 sensors. They regulate how much fuel is fed to the engine and if they are bad it may cause your vehicle to burn more gas and run poorly.

Check the gas cap, take the cap back off the distributor and check to see if there is any play in the shaft (back and forth) and check for excessive play in the pinion gear. If it seems fine you can also check for play in the timing chain. If you are in the habit of not keeping the fuel tank full it may be a water in the fuel problem or could be water in the fuel. Double check your work on the tune-up, make sure that you didnt foget something. It happens to the best of us. Is the air filter fine? You can also check vacuum lines and the ducting between the MAF sensor and the plenum. Well good luck.

Engine Stalls When stopped and in Drive

Question, did you replace the throttle body, or clean the throttle plate, it will carbon up and block air needed for the idling speed to be correct. Also check for vacuum leaks, as the older vehicles didn't have good vacuum hoses. Good luck

Throttle had dead spot on Daewoo Lanos 1999 1.6SX

Sounds like you are you referring to the,"Throttle Position Sensor". You can check that with an ohm meter to try and verify dead spot. remove connector, hold probes on pins, have someone slowly & steadily push gas pedal. Readings should go up & down smooth & gradual, any sudden loss or jump in reading would indicate dead spot.

88 F-150 stutters at speed

could possible be a bad fuel pump or a bad fules filter a dirty fuel filter can cause the same effects as a quick solution try running vehicle with dry gas when u get down to a quater tank should evaperate any water and also replace that fuel filter before a good fuel pump goes bad and will cost you alot more than a filter
