No matter what gas I put in my truck it seems to be running rich, bad smell coming from the exhaust. The exhaust manifolds are cracked also is this a problem with this vehicle?

Possible causes include a bad O2 sensor, excessive fuel pressure (bad fuel pressure regulator or plugged return line), leaky fuel injectors, dirty air filter or restricted air inlet, or a defective coolant sensor that prevents the engine management system from going into closed loop mode. Exhaust manifold leaking will make the oxygen sensor read lean and computer will throw fuel at it.
