SOURCE: randomly loses power and sometime dies

1st thing to do is have the system tested for the code that caused the check engine light to come, you may also have a fuel pump starting to fail or many other things, the check engine light may be the key. How many wiles on the car?

Park it and forget where you left it. Or if you have any mechanical skills or inclinations, you could do some basic tests, but avoid the dangerous driving test - do this with the engine running if it needs to be running, but stationary.
It sounds like it could be the catalytic converter is getting clogged. It blocks the exhaust from going out the tail pipe. When the car is completely cool, if you thump it pretty hard, or grasp and shake it, and hear any rattling, then it is damaged and probably blocking your exhaust. If it sounds good, you could next open the exhaust somewhere ahead of the cat converter, like pulling out an oxygen sensor temporarily, or disconnecting the exhaust somewhere. Then run the engine and see if it noticeably improves. That's a bad cat.

Last, which probably should have been first, is check for trouble codes. Most important don't let repairs bankrupt you.

The dinging from the dash is the Air bag system check. Check that the bulb in the dash isn't burned out. The stalling and spitting could be clogged converter. Check how much exhaust is coming out of the tail pipe when you rev it. The smoke could just be from a leaking valve cover gasket.

The very first thing you need to do is a good tuneup including plugs, wires, rotor, cap, air and fuel filters and fix the exhaust. There is a good chance your problem will be solved. Note that your car MUST have an intact exhaust system or it will lose a lot of power.

I have a 1995 chevy astro van that throws out gray smoke from the exhaust which later turns to black smoke the smoke also smells like gas


May be a head gasket. Anti-freeze will burn white / gray. Make sure you are not losing coolant. Look at your oil on the dip for any signs of foaming / water.
Take care.
