Having problems with backfiring and smelling gas... poor acceleration and sometimes stalls. Changed fuel filter, plugs, fuel pump works. I am hearing about a fuel press. regulator. Where is that? I'm a girl, so no laughing.
First you have to do fuel pressure test while engine running. The fuel pressure regulator is located on side of injector box

Check your timing. It sounds like it is off maybe enough that the motor jumped her time. Hope this helps.

Testimonial: "It idles perfect. No issues. Thanks for the advice. I will check the timing and the plugs and let you know if that helps. "
Do a compression test on all of your cylinders when it is cold. Backfiring is a sign of a worn valve seat allowing mixed fuel and air (lit by spark) to be forced back into the intake. You will probably see compression loss on one or more cylinders.
Also... there is a chance that the EGR valve is not totally seated when the engine is cold with just a small blow by. The EGR valve seats coke up over time with black gunk.

fuel lines inside the intake plhenum may be cracked and leaking inside the plhenum. same thing happened to my 1992.sonoma. they are made of a plastic material and tend to crack right in the bend of these lines.
