I smell gas when accelerating to drive and my car sputs

Customer Question

Hi Pearl, I smell gas when accelerating to drive and my car sputs several times as if it is going to stop. I took it to my mechanic who says that no code is coming up on his machine, therefore he doesn't know where to start.
JA: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the fuel filters?
Customer: the car is 2007, same transmission
JA: What is the model of your '07 Cadillac?
Customer: i have not check the fuel filter
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I would like for my local mechanic to repair it, because I don't have the money for the dealership
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: no, not that I have noticed
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Cadillac Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
