    no I haven't checked them, and the Check engine light comes on for a few days then goes off.

    Do you have a check engine light? It could be that and oxygen sensor is bad, and the car is running rich. You can also check it by felling if ther is a lot of black sut on the inside of your tail pipe. Have you checked either one?

    What year is the car? You could have a calibration issue or it could be somthing as simple as the car being bought in a higher or lower elevation.

Engine stalling


The sulfur smell is usually low grade gas or a problem with the catalytic converter.
In your case I would go for bad gas, especially if the problem just started happening recently. You can try adding premium to the tank and drive it out. You may have to replace the fuel filter once or twice if the gas has water or other contamination.

Run rough low power gas smell


Hello
The engine and transmission in this cars drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPEDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

2001 Monte Carlo has about 168,000 miles on it. Stopped for awhile left engine running and car smelled like gas (propane like smell). Recently "low Coolant" light has come on and then gone off...


Some of these issues are unrelated. One thing to look at is the condition of the turn signal switch and the ignition switch. The low coolant light has a TSB from Chevy on the issue and it says to check and clean the sensor. The sensor is on the radiator and has to be removed. The sensor can become contaminated with engine oil, check for oil in the coolant if that is present then you need to find the source of the oil and correct the problem. This problem could be serious like a head gasket issue. That would explain the loss of power and the smell.

Rough idle no check engine lights sometimes runs up to 2000rpms other times dies out or idles low smell like its runing rich changed the tps with no change whats the problem?


It sounds like your engine is gummed up. I recommend that you get two bottles of a fuel additive called seafoam and dump them into the gas tank. In no time, your engine will be purring again.

Idle low then hi, and gas smell, and bad gas mileage


This should show up easily on the ECU diagnostics computer at a mercedes dealership. Basically your fuel mixture is way too rich causing your car to be heavy on gas, have a raw gasoline smell, and not run right. Something like this can be caused by a defective oxygen sensor (but that usually produces a check engine light) or it might even be a defective ECU. There is really not way of knowing for sure until you do a proper diagnostics where they hook up your exhaust at the same time and do an emmission test. In most cases it's some sensor that needs replacing.
