Question about Cars & Trucks
Can be any number of problems but the most common problem causing that type of stalling is failure of the THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR. Less common causes include ECM failure and various sensor failures. If the CHECK ENGINE light is illuminated or flashing when the car is idling, the error codes may help reveal the problem. If not, start by checking/replacing the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor).

The most common cause of this is a defective Mass Airflow Sensor, it is located in the air intake hose to the engine, here is a picture. this sensor will not in most cases turn on the check engine light.

there is a float in your gas tank kinda like the float in your toilet. Sometimes they stick and if the bell goes off then back.. it prob. from the gas splashing in the tank. I wouldnt' be concerned too much.

Sounds like you might have an oxygen sensor problem. Your catalytic converter(s) maybe defective or dirty. That in turn can dirty up the oxygen sensor. A defective oxygen sensor will send faulty info to the computer, interpreting the fumes as cold (even when the engine warms up). That causes the computer to adjust the fuel mixture to very rich, giving you poor gas mileage and the fuel smell. Hope it helps.
