Default Loss of power

Not sure if I have a exhaust issue or ignition issue but when I drive it bogs down and sputters. I have a strong exhaust smell when it idles. Not sure also if it has something to do with the spark plugs or coil packs. Please someone help

Sounds like the car is running way too rich.

When you get on it do you see any black smoke coming out of exhaust??

too many variables to give any real help, you need to use a scan tool to run a diagnostic and see what codes you get back, if any. then come back and tell us what the codes are. without that info all you will get on here is guess after guess. there are literally hundreds of things that can cause driveability concerns.

No black smoke just a really odd smell from the exhaust when I do get on it. I'm getting ready to buy a code scanner to check it out
