First thing is to get the computer scanned and see if there are any codes. The fuel smell is where the injectors are pushing fuel in the combustion chamber most likely. The first thing is get the computer scanned for codes

Check and clean the IAC valve. Idle Control Valve. Use brake cleaner or carburater cleaner . Remove the duct work from the air filter assembly. It is located just inside . Run the engine at 1200 rpms and spray the valve. The valve can also be removed and cleaned.

With modern cars it is bad when the engine light just comes on and the vehicle does something very different. It should not be driven. If the car is smelling of fuel and jerking it is because it's miss-firing (i.e. one or more cylinder is not getting spark but is getting fuel). This can be anything from electrical/electronic to mechanical like a broken rotor cap (as an example). The good thing, is that the light is coming on and a mechanic can check the ECU for error codes. Alternatively, you can buy or barrow one your self and check it out on your own (I think even certain auto-part stores will check it for you as long as you get in the zone;). 1996 is a good year for that since that is when OBDII started and all vehicles started using the same port to check for issues.

Hello, this may be a bad fuel filter becuase if you ran your fuel real low you may have sucked some corrosion or rust into your system. You may need to purge your system of air through a fuel pressure valve which is near your throttle body. Be careful however when pressing this valve with a screwdriver becuase fuel pressure can puncture your skin. I would replace your fuel filter, and fresh gas, bleed your fuel system, and possibly replace your spark plugs and this should help you. If this does not work you probaly have a bad filter on your fuel pump in your tank there is a like a little sock on the end of that fuel pump which can give inadequate amounts of fuel to your system becuase of it being clogged. Thank You.

Your issue is your cylinder head is dead, and most likely has caused damage to the piston on the dead cylinder. A compression test will show you have a dead cylinder. You should have no less than 100 psi compression on any cylinder. I have personally seen this issue on escorts over 50 times.
