03 Flooding out

Good Morning All!
I have an 03 escape 3.0 4wd that seems to be flooding out.
When I start the truck the rpms go up to 4 then it drops down...then drops to nothing and will choke off. If you drive it sometimes it will cut off when driving but this just started happening and after turn the truck after you can smell gas...
Any suggestions... It not my daily driver I use it to drive on the beach so any help is greatly appreciated...

When it shuts off while driving does it happen when you let off the throttle or when you still have it depressed?
Does it happen all the time or only when the engine is hot or cold?

Well, since you only drive it on the beach, it can only be one thing.....

If you drive it like that for any length of time, those cats are going to be $$$
