I'm assuming your engine turns over but won't kick in. If you're smelling gas, then that means your fuel system is getting gas to the motor, but your ignition system isn't lighting it.

You'll have to check for spark by pulling one of the plugs and connecting a spark checker. If there's no spark, then you'll have to find out why. Start at the distributor and control module.
