Alright man i know what your talking about on the starting, it happen to me. You might have a stator/distibutor problem. I had it about 3 months ago. Let me tell you it isnt cheap. Luckly i have a warranty on my car. it went out on my car, but there just enough left on the part to start once and awhile and then die about 5 mins later and not start the rest of them day, and if it did my car smelled like total gas, I think it smelled this way because it burned out my fuel pump also. I took my car to ford and had the fuel pump fixed thinking that was it, the stator went bad. The stator part alone was 1,000 dollars and now my car runs really good. So that might be your problem your stator/distibutor has gone. but it could be something else that just what my problem was.
