Try to locate the fuel pressure regulator, and unplug the vacium hose going to it, if you smell or se fuel at all, that means the fuel pressure regulator is bad and need to be replaced

You have a defective battery. Overnight, it leaks off power. In the morning when you start it by jump starting (or a push) and it runs, the alternator will charge it, making it good the rest of the day. Then again the power will be drained overnight due to the shorted battery components.

make sure the gas cap is on tight. vapor recovery system depends on the closure of the gas cap. if that did not solve your problem, I would suggest to get a new gas cap first, before going to the dealer or any repair shop for a turn-up.

You need to get the computer scanned. This can be done at Auto Zone or similar parts stores free of charge. More than likely you will just need new spark plugs and/or plug wires but I cannot be certain without the engine code.
Hope this helps, remember to rate this answer.
