Does str mean rpm?

Smell of gas normally means you're running rich.
If your o2 sensor (lamda sensor) are older than 100,000 miles then it would be a good idea to do replace it.

Even if that isn't the problem, it's still good preventive maintenance... like changing the oil.

I would also check for vacuum leaks.

A dirty or bad MAF (mass air flow) sensor could also contribute to rises and drops in RPMs.

Idle Air Control Valve could also be bad.

Don't wait around too long to fix this problem. Take it to a shop if you have to. A car that is running too rich will prematurely wear out a cat converter.

I had this problem with my car a few months ago it was my ecu some of the points were burnt out drive it how it is and if it begins to get hard to start its the same thing i had whats happening is the ecu is guageing there is to much air flow so the ecu compansates by adding more fuel so whats happening is the your engine sits low when you start it then goes back on its self and goes to normal cold idol revs the when it heats up it goes to normal this was happening to mine for about 2 months before things started going very wrong so i would take it to your local mechanic and get him to run a diognostics test on it and if thats not the problem it is preobibly a dirty lens or a faulty air flow meter hope this help
