I have a 2000 Chevy suburban 1500 LS it smells like gas when running real bad,when cold it starts fine when warm it takes 2 or 3 trys to get it to start, when running he has a rough time going from 0 to 30...

1. Is the Check Engine Light (CEL) on?
2. if it is, get an ODB II code reader and read the codes from the engine. There might be more than one code. (most auto parts store will do this for free if live close to an auto parts store)
With that code reader you can almost get the car to point you to the problem. Pull the codes from your car and post them and then someone can give you a more exact answer to your question.

My gmc 4.3 stalls when warm and wont start without ether. then it runs fine

I had the exact problem with my 1993 chevy c1500. I found that the IAC was sticking so the engine would die at idle after warming up and the ignition module was pulsing the ECM intermittently after the engine warmed up so the fuel pump wasn't being turned on after the engine died....I replaced the ignition module and the IAC valve and all is good. I don't know if testing the ignition module reveals that it isn't sending pulses to the ECM.

Engine runs backwards when cold. After many trys runs and starts fine until it sits for a few days then same thing, Use the car every day an no problem.

I would start with changing your battery. Sounds like the polarity is changing for some reason. May have been jumped at one time backwards!! Weird!!
