Must be some bad information getting to the ecu. Bad conections due to salt corrosion may be the cause. Bright metal contacts are essential for correct transmission of information from sensors to and from the ECU (brain). I'd take it to your auto parts store ask them to read the Ecu error codes. It may help isolate the problem. Sounds like fuel supply system problems.

SOURCE: My car has poor acceleration and it shakes when stop also smells

Sounds like you're missing on a cylinder or two. Tune it up, first. That might very well fix your problem. Tell the part store guy you need a COMPLETE tune up kit and replace everything that he gives you parts for. Not just plugs and wires, although they would be better than nothing. I'm pretty sure this will fix you up. The symptoms you're describing are classic for a tune up.

Check the tightness of the manifold bolts and look for evidence of a leaking gasket. If it is an injected petrol engine it could be leaking injector seals. Sounds like a vacuum problem. PS check all vacuum lines for cracks. Col
