I'd check the fuel line for holes, splits and bad connections. Then the carburettor, have any of the gaskets failed, is there any petrol leaking. Finally are any breather pipes blocked or disconnected.

Car cutting while driving and idling just keep going up and down


Check your RPM, check if it is rushing when you turn it on. Set the RPM needle to exactly 1.
Try this first.

Myopelmariva has a car symbol with the spanner across and it cuts off at 3000 rpm


which engine, most cars have many engines choices.
if the ECU/PCM sets the CAM sensor (CMP) that can be 2 things
loose cam belt, or loose chain, some have belt some have chain.
if the belt is loose, the cam bounces, and the CMP sees that and gets confused, or the sensor is bad. (or just dirty clean it)
RPM limit can be stuck in limphome mode, or lean fuel
or too rich misfire, i see you mech is not so good, here state side any ASE mech would find it fast. (scan tool PIDS)


so enigne which is it. never post engine question to any one, unless you can state the engine, name and number.
let me give and example.
Petrol
  • 1.4 TWINPORT, with 90 PS (66 kW; 89 hp) (from 2005)
  • 1.6 (8v), with 85 PS (63 kW; 84 hp)
  • 1.6 (16v), with 100 PS (74 kW; 99 hp)
  • 1.8, with 125 PS (92 kW; 123 hp)
Both 1.4 and 1.8 are available as flexfuel in Brazil.
Diesel
  • 1.7 CDTI, with 100 PS (74 kW; 99 hp)
Petrol
  • 1.4 TWINPORT, with 90 PS (66 kW; 89 hp)
  • 1.6 TWINPORT 105 PS (77 kW; 104 hp)
  • 1.8, with 125 PS (92 kW; 123 hp)
  • 1.6 Turbo, with 180 PS (132 kW; 178 hp) (OPC/VXR model only)
Diesel
  • 1.3 CDTI, with 75 PS (55 kW; 74 hp)
  • 1.7 CDTI, with 100 PS (74 kW; 99 hp)
more....

it is near impossible to fix any engine not know which one it is.
and 10x on line. we are blind here, but not your mech.
i looks and goes, ahh, z16XSE or...

but your mech, fire him, find a real one and one that has a scan tool., knows how to read live data and how to check the belt for loose or slipped. or just a dirty cmp.
btw those errors mean the CMP is reading wrong. only why is in question, it is reading wrong. for sure.
the CMP can trip for 1 pulse in 10 bad. its a very sensitive test.
with VTT engines more parts to mess cam locations or jog.
variable valve timing, that.

post back your engine. on our cars the VIN tells this tale.
on non usa cars the fire wall chassis tag has engine type clearly stated. read it.

The engine of my car smells like its leaking gas


Leaking petrol is a source of fire and if it is leaking and you have a slight bump there could be crispy critters in either your car or the one you hit. Besides that leaking fuel is a waste of money. Have an accredited service shop look at it as it will the best idea you will have . No --it is not safe to drive with a fuel smell coming from the car

RPM drops to zero at idling after engine accelerates when warm


This may been an ignition module or a MAF sensor, this car may need to be diagnosed using a OBD I computer code reader to accurately diagnose the problem.
