From what you describe, you've probably washed out the rings.

most cars the oil smells like gas...well on older engines...its not that big a deal, oil is on the cylinder walls, in the cylinders there is fuel, its bound to mix up and cause the oil to smell like gas...is the oil black already?

faulty MAP maybe?
Tell us what codes your getting.
A faulty MAP will cause the car to run like crap, really bad, though.
