Question about 1997 Oldsmobile Bravada
Strong smell of gasoline fumes means that there may be other issues involved than the O2 Sensor.
If it is enough of a smell that you believe gasoline is leaking in the engine compartment, I would not drive the car. The catalytic converter goes up to over a thousand degrees under the car after it is stopped. If vapors accumulate in that area. You could have a fire. NOT SAFE !!.
I would have the car towed to the nearest reliable service facility if you suspect a leak.
If you are working on the car yourself. Open the hood, pull the air cleaner and look for leaks in the fuel injection system. Along the fuel rails and where the injectors go into the manifold.
If it is just flooded then that could have something to do with the O2 Sensors. Please, use caution.
Hope this helps,

Knock Sensor Strategies: A failure with the knock sensor can cause spark knock and engine damaging detonation because the PCM will not know to ****** ignition timing if knock is occurring.
I suggest to replace spark plugs before you return back.
