CAR STALL

My car shakes and idles offbeat when in drive or reverse and sometimes stalls, and I smell gas when it does it, could be a fuel injection problem, since when there is low gas it tends to do it more, what are the possible reasons for this?

Do you have a check engine light and when was last major tune-up?

Check the fuel pressure with a gauge if its within specs-start here

No check engine light, and I replaced the spark plugs and wires about 3-4 months ago, but I havent checked the fuel pressure

Perform the fuel pressure check and get back with the readings-also check the idle air control valve and PCV/EGR valves-throttle position sensor
