Cold start it smells like fuel bad. After warm up it has a strong exhaust odor. Also car has a light idle surge. No issues with performance at all it screams and runs hard a hell. Timings at 14 no ping. Premium fuel. It does have cold air intake factory Maf performance throttle body. And the tps is at .98.

Is your check engine light on? Maybe a faulty O2 sensor. I would check the spark plugs and see if their are any fuel deposits on them.

O2 sensors replaced about 3 weeks ago. Th others were cut by previous idiot. I mean owner.

Check engine comes on after warm up. I haven't ran the codes yet cause I was making sure I find and fix all the obvious issues. And there have been plenty of those.

Check/replace your temperature sensors. IAT (Intake Air Temp) & ECT (Engine Coolant Temp).

Any autoparts store should carry them, or could atleast have you them overnight

Roughly $20-$25 a piece. Pick up a chilton or haynes manual for your car also, it will walk you through pretty much anything on your car

If the sensors dont fix it ,,you could have a injector dripping a little when you shut it off,,
