I had exactly the same problem. The problem was with the fuel line clamps directly under the air plenum on the right side of the engine, right above the fuel injectors. The solution is to replace the factory spring clamps with proper hose clamps - a buck each. The real problem is that to get at the inside clamp, you have to remove the air plenum. It took me about 90 minutes to get it off and the same to reassemble. Not all that difficult, just very time consuming.

2001 kia sportage hard to crank when it does it smell like it's flooded after a bit it may cut off could it be the tempture sensor

When u smell the fuel, that means its not burning via spark plugs. It sounds like u may be losing spark for some reason. If it ONLY happens cold or ONLY the sensor may be involved. Sounds like a spark loss. Good luck

Fuel smell inside car, will start and run but stalls after driving, bogs down loses power.

Sounds like a leak in the fuel line could be causing the fuel smell.

Gas smell under the hood at times

Any leaks from where the fuel line comes in? Could be a leaking exhaust header causind the smell. Check your hoses and lines and make sure none of them are broken or rotted. is the engine loud when it's at idle and parked?

check the fuel line hose near the fuel regulator for wear as they tend to leak or corrode causing a gas smell inside the car. My 2000 Kia Sportage just had the same problem with the gas smell inside the car.
