Could be a faulty O2 sensor. The sensor would not take action until the engine warmed up. Have you checked for trouble codes in the engine computer ?

Check for leaking fuel lines or a puddle of gas under the car. If the exhaust smells like gas then the gas isn't burning completely and may be a number of things like spark plugs, plug wires, clogged air intake, fuel injector that stuck open...

Running rich will damage the converter. You may have a broken injector. Is the engine light on? If yes, get a scan to see if a certain cylinder is misfiring. You would have to raise the injector rail to check the injectors.

Loss of power ,misfire, and strong smell of gas in 99 yukon 5.7


You'll need to pull the code from the computer to find what cylinder it is. It could be simple as replacing the spark plug (check it for damage) or the ignition coil. If the spark plug doesn't fix it, try moving the ignition coil to a different cylinder to see if the misfire follows that coil. If it does, replace the coil. If it does not, do a compression test as you may have dropped a valve or lost compression rings in that cylinder. Since there is raw fuel dumping into the exhaust there is the risk of fire from the catalytic converter.

These things are notorious for having crank sensor failures. Not too expensive and not too dificult to replace. I would try that first.

check you exhaust. you may have a damaged cat or a broken baffle in the exhaust eather of these will stall the engine and you will have a strong smell of fuel.

This is an idea not a for sure. Bad or worn valves can cause what you describe. Had something similar happen to an 2004 Toyota. Due to bad lubrication, crazy huh?

Your timing belt could be broken. You want to have this checked as soon as possible to prevent any further engine problems.
