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 the same problem?

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
