Have you confirmed that a fuel rail hasn't been cracked or an injector loosened?

For now, don't drive it unless in dire emergency or you might cause one!

I believe on your vehicle that to the throttle body would be a line from the EGR valve...if when they put on the new throttle body they didn't reattach it properly or it has a cracked fitting then you might smell it. Have you noticed a declined performance and/or more gas usage?

You have a gas leak somewhere, and it would be a good idea to find it soon before it hits a spark and catches on fire!!

Son has a mazda protege dx runs rough when cold, backfires through intake, gasoline in oil, thinking idle air, but could it be injectors?

Gas in the oil can only get there threw the injector/s. One is stuck open. replace them all if it is worth the car. Back firing, I would check compression on the cylinders first, add a little oil first to all cylinders first, one or more cylinders are dry from the fuel, before putting any more money into it. Back firing threw the throttle body, could be timing or burnt valves.

Fuel line diagram

you may have the wrong line.. its probably a vent hose..not a supply line..take the hose loose and blow air pressure into the tank.. if no gas comes out, its a vent line..

2002 Ford taurus runs completely normal except when driving above 35 mph I press the gas hard to accerlate and it goes to down shift, at that point the hole car lurches forward and back like it is shifting...

throttle position sensor is worn when it gets to that spot it trys to die thats why downshift is happening otherwise runs excellent until the sensor reaches that part of the electrical contact inside that is worn out and no contact situation change the sensor also spray out the throttle body with cleaner

I have a 2007 ford fusion and its idle by its self my wrench light came on and then went off. its sound like its missing. i know i need and oil change it acts like it dnt wanna take da gas. my check engine...

Normally when the wrench light comes on it relates to the electronic throttle body. When the computer detects a fault with the throttle body it will go into a fail safe mode and limit throttle inputs.
You should get your oil changes on time but I dont think this is your problem. You really need to get the vehicle codes read by the dealer or some auto parts stores read the computer codes for free.

DPFE changed out burning smell

Check the fuel system, the pump and the fuel pressure regulator or Mass Air Flow Sensor. Evaporated emissions are the fumes that your fuel gives off. The pollution control system pulls them back into the intake to burn them off when you are running your engine. There is a vacuum line that is leaking between the fuel tank and the sensor that detects this or your gas cap is loose or leaking. It could also be a bad sensor which detects vacuum pressures from the tank. If everything has been check, then check inside the throttle by pulling off your Air pressure Intake then open the throttle by using screwdriver or any tools than can push in one the fuel control line to open, which is attach on the left side of the throttle. and if you look straight inside, you will see three hole. Then look by the bottom and you will see the two hole cover with black burned Oil. This means your fuel mixer (Throttle) is not pushing out air properly it gets clog , and the only way to get out is when you push the Gas peddle which is the burned gas will come all the way out to the Air Intake and it will circulate to any open area. If I was right about this! Your solution is to buy a Air Intake Cleaner or Carb-Throttle Cleaner. with the engine OFF, spray inside the throttle by using the red straw and point it to clean the two black clog hole. then wait for a about10 minutes or more to dry up cleaner after spraying the inside throttle. When you start the engine, black smoke will come out to the muffler. No worry this is normal to the engine, means the cleaner is burning and working to get out. Without cleaning the throttle body, the engine will soon stall, or stop without any giving warning light, because this means your A.C. Pressure Clutch and Idle Pully barring are NO longer working properly and maybe totally wormed out. You may also change the throttle position sensor. and check all your Gas and Oil Intake Hoses for a leak. hope this will help to solve your problem. P.S. You can also spray the Intake cleaner to your Intake Mass Air Flow Pressure Filter before putting it back to the throttle body.
If you have any more question you can email me at Take care and Good luck.

Changed battery and now Camry will not idle.

Was it idling before you changed the battery? If you were to clean out the throat of the aluminum inlet manifold just behind the throttle body with a parts cleaner product that is safe for plastics (sensors) the car will idle.
The engine features a intake valve cover vent that goes back into the front of the throttle body. After time, the vent tube deposits a lot of oil and gunk in the throttle body assembly and just behind it into the intake manifold.

2004 ford taurus hesitates when I hit the gas?

this is happening because of your fuel pressure which is slowing down when you open the throttle to the intake manifold. you are losing fuel pressure somewhere from the gas tank and the fuel rail. do a fuel pressure check test. that might do the trick.
