Re: my engine light comes on.car turns off.
The best way to diagnose the check engine light is with a code reader.in order to know what code is causing the engine light you need to see a mechanic in your area, a friend who is a mechanic or return your vehicle to the dealer.

Sounds like you may have a fuel leak, somewhere! It could be out onto the (surroundings), or into the motor. If the exhaust smells like fuel, I would almost bet it's leaking into the engine, and would have to guess that one or more of your fuel injectors are "seeping".
Its all connected. The computer uses a solenoid to vent the fumes from the tank when the engine is running. The vapor canister holds the fumes until the vent valve is opened. The computer tried to vent the tank and something went wrong. It could be from the excessive heat or something with the venting system. A mechanic would test the venting system.
I have a 2002 grand am and less than a year ago had to replace cadalitic converter. The check engine light would come on once in awhile, and the car will start to bogg down. It started out as intermitent then eventually all the time. The smell may be the heating up of the converter.
