Default My motor feels like it wants to turn off?

My 2001 SS has around 110K miles.
Symptoms: While coming to a dead stop the motor feels like it wants to turn off. When I'm driving, the motor sounds like it struggles and you can hear the exhaust making a pop sound when shifting. There's also a strong smell of gas out the exhaust pipes. I'm no professional and this is my daily driver so I need help. Any suggestions or advice. Thanx

Engine light flickers off and on. The Western Forum suggest a vacuum leak?

Just got a scanner from Autozone and it found the code P0307 which is cylinder 7 misfire. I will have to check my plugs and wire and make sure my #7 injector is not clogged. If is then I have to buy new ones. BTW I have no cats! Thanx Jason for your assistance.

Also, when checking your plugs and wires, inspect the coil packs. Any shop should be able to do an OHM test to confirm that the coils are good. Symptoms of said problem would be similar to yours.

Update: I Put on all new spark plugs, a new air filter, and a new fuel filter. My car is running awesome and it hasn't felt like this for quite some time. I hope it stays that way! Thanks everyone for the advice..

I guess I spoke to soon: I got the code P0155 (02 Heater Circuit Bank 2 Sensor 1). Anybody have an idea on how to fix this? My car is struggling and it's my DD. Thanx
