Question about 1997 Chrysler Town & Country
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.

hmmm shaking may be a tune up issue and as far as the gas smell goes i would take it to the dealersdhip and have them diagnose it

Chrysler has a bulletin out for a simular condititon that involves replacing the pcm. Heres the bulletin number 18-005-04. This is only 1 possible cause , Fuel pressure, coolant temp sensor, thottle position sensor all can cause like problems. Seeing sensor values and fuel adaptives with a scan tool helps pin point problems.

yes some systems have to be burped or the boil over can occur in the motor and cause head gasket issues..at 195k i think you should check the system for leaks and thermostat if it is opening at right tempatures or is slow..plus the vented cap on your radiator check with vacuum gauge if it holds about 12-14 psi before it vents...
