Why does a 92 Cavalier rs 2.2 have gas to the injector but not to the throttle body and you can smell gas in the oil?

If you can smell gas in your oil that is a bad thing. If you take off your oil cap and look at the inside of the cap if you see a greyish milky whitish color than you more than likely are on your way to a fully blown head gasket. When the head gasket seal starts going it leaks gas into the motor causing it to mix with your oil. After a short period of time your oil/gas mixture will cause and overload in friction inside the motor and this will "blow" out at the weakest point that being your already damaged head gasket.
