Trouble starting car with gas smell

Hello, I have a 2012 dodge avenger. For a while now I've been having a starting issue buts it's been slowly getting worse.

It's hard to start, and smells like gas outside after it does start for a few minutes. Then it's fine, unless it sits for an hour or so, then the whole thing starts over.

The check engine light is on, as well as gas cap message (though I think that's because the gas cap area gets dusty and blocks the sensor). Brand new fuel pump, battery, and the spark plugs are two years old.

If you live in the USA, take it to an AutoZone and get a free computer readout.

I would suggest using a scan tool (OBD2) or manually flashing the codes (if you can for that year) to try figure out what the check engine light is on for. There are plenty of pretty cheap ones out there, e.g. OBDII to bluetooth ones which connect to an app on your phone. I own an Autel AL619 which I have found very useful, and cost me all of a hundred bucks or so. Just make sure the one you buy supports your vehicle year.

There are various engine sensors which could be failing and causing this issue, e.g. the MAF sensor, idle air control valve, cam angle sensor, etc. Getting an engine code will give you a good indication where the fault might lie.
