What would cause it not to idle when stopped?

Just all of a sudden bogged down when stopped and has done it ever since. Also has a strange, strong odor to it. It will start up and drive fine down the road but at a stop you have to keep one foot on brake and one pumping the fuel pedal so it doesn't die on you. I have changed spark plugs and wires but this did not help. What would be another cause?

Do you
have the same problem?

Any applicable trouble codes? Check/clean the idle air system.
