1998 Lincoln Town car looks like something is flooding the engine.

So a few weeks back my Town Car started to do this. On occasion no matter whether the engine is hot or cold, whether the temperature outside is hot or cold, or the climate is damp or dry, for whatever reason sometimes it starts up and misfires violently, when you press the gas normally it doesn't want to accept it and it spews and stutters, and eventually dies. And there's the smell of gasoline from the engine. When it does this if you start and immediately keep on the gas a lot it runs, also if you were driving it, it hesitates, but evens out after a mile or so.
