just take the undo the battery cables?
Expert:  Ron replied 3 months ago.

You can clear all codes by disconnecting the negative battery cable for a few minutes. Once you have done this, restart the engine and let see what code reset. Post back with those and we can work from there.

why am i smelling gas in the first place
Expert:  Ron replied 3 months ago.

If you smelling gas then you either have a leak in the system or you have an EVAP system leak.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
will that unburned gas thats leaking cause the backfire?
Expert:  Ron replied 3 months ago.

A back fire is in most cases caused by either a valve timing concern and or an engine misfire and yes if the engine is running to rich it could cause a backfire.
