First approach.... remove air intake and clean out the throttle body. If older engine with carburator, use carb cleaner. sounds like door is sticking. hit the throttle control with wd40 next to the throttle body as well. rotate this with your hand, it should be stiff and return back when released or spring is too loose.

Ran gas now starts then turns off and smells like burning rubber

Not sure I follow your story. If you really did run out of gas, you may have damaged the fuel pump in the tank. But it would not cause any smells.
Can you tell where the smell is coming from ?

My 2004 Honda CRV looses power while driving. I have to push on the gas very hard to get it to go. The RPM's stay high. If I let off the gas it will pull back and stall. There is a smell of something...

Does it smell like rotten eggs? Because it could be your cat converter plugged up. Also is any fluid leaking or brakes locking that could also cause the smell? When you start it does it stay running when in park and then die in gear (Possible torq converter lock up)? Since no codes we have to go back to basics to troubleshoot. Any more info on the way it runs and starts that you can give would be helpful even if it's the littlest thing that you can remember because a few things can do this. I just want to narrow our search for the problem.Thanks

Crysler lhs 96 runs real rough...smells rich. rpm goes up and down. wont stay running.

Most likely faulty 02 sensors. They tell the computer how much gas to give the car. A faulty camshaft position sensor may also act this way to. You can check sensor with an ohmmeter and check that there is an electrical flow through the sensor.

Fuel pump noise smell gas while car is running 92 mustang

the pump should stop when it builds up to the correct pressure. if it continues to pump and you smell fuel then you probably have a fuel leek. normally fuel consumption will increase with a leek, even slightly.
