sounds like a 2 cyl please help

My engine light came on a couple days ago and i have been driving alot since. I thought because i had recently taken my intake off and cleaned it that was the reason for the light. well today i was really low on gas so i got like 5 bucks worth and got on it leaving the gas station drove about 5 miles and took it out of gear to roll to the stop sign then my light started flashing i got a wierd smell and when i tried to take off it sounded like it was bogged down not running on all cylinders and the smell increased. PLease help i have no freaking clue what this could be. My intake was extremely dirty it had oil residue and gunk on the manifold side...?

Just bought the car like 6 months ago i need to do alot to get her right please help with this.

Re: sounds like a 2 cyl please help

what kind of smell? what did it smell like? how low on gas were you? like beyond E? you shouldn't ever let it get below a quarter tank. thats how you suck **** up and clog your fuel lines and filter and injectors. first few times won't do it but when your car is getting as old as ours are starting to get, it will happen if you do it just a few times.
